I've been looking for a reasonably priced sunrise alarm clock...they don't exist, and the overpriced ones that do seem to be white-light only.
How cool to have a BlinkyStrip behind the headboard that can glow deep blue, and slowly brighten through orange hues and then brighter yellow? control the duration of "sunrise" with an input parameter.
So I have this idea, but where would I start? could an arduino program be triggered from a commercial alarm clock?
