Bias lighting – your eyes will thank it

A short article about another hardware/software project. To reduce eye-strain, an RGB LED light strip was installed behind my monitor. The lights can be programmed to simulate crackling flames, sunrise or other calming effects while reducing eye-strain from the high contrast ratio between a monitor and the darkness behind it. Read all about it here.

A new bird joins the flock; a Northern Parula
