Twinkle Star Ambient Email Notifier

You always expect some of the important emails in your email account, but the waiting process makes you become even more nervous?

Kill the nervous today with this stylish twinkle star ambient email notifier.

Those materials that needed are:

  • 4d-micro-USB module
  • RGB LED
  • RS-232 port
  • Picaxe 08M
  • COM port
  • Python script

Firstly, you need to use a 4d-micro-USB module to provide the power resource. The RGD LED will be controlled by the RS-232 port through the Picaxe 08M.

One of the cool feature about this ambient email notifier is you can control the colors and the brightness. How? It’s all can be done by sending execution code to the COM port.

As the Python script will act as a task scheduler along with an accompanying system tray icon, which it will constantly allow the LED light switch off again.

Beside that, you can adjust the RGB LED colors according to your favor, ie. Green for work email, blue for newsletter and blue for other.

Work on it today!
