LED + RFID Desk Toy

In this video we build a fun RGB LED desk toy that uses RFID cards to let visitors to my office easily change the colors.

The desk toy features my name, modeled in Fusion 360, and printed on a Printrbot Metal Simple. Each letter is backlit using a WS2812b RGB LED. To facilitate interaction, the project has a Mifare-style RC522 RFID reader. The project is driven by an Arduino Pro Mini.

Tutorial:Using a RFID Card Reader with the Arduino (Update)

This tutorial was developed for the MAKE course at the University of South Florida (www.makecourse.com). This tutorial discusses the use of MF522-AN and RC522 RFID readers and MIFARE Classic 1k tags/cards with the Arduino. The basics of RFID communication are reviewed as well as the MIFARE card hardware. A library for the MF522 that can be found at github (https://github.com/miguelbalboa/rfid) is being used for a simple Arduino sketch that allows the writing and reading of blocks on a MIFARE...
