HueIce Live

While working with the unofficial Philips Hue API, another idea appeared to me. What if I could take a live videofeed, calculate the average color, convert it to HSL, and send it to any connected hue bulbs? Well, I would have one big-ass Ambilight setup, that is what!

After a couple of hours coding tonight, mainly working on pixel selection, I got a prototype up and running.

I plan to sell this for around 5$, do you think that is reasonable?

Videos of the prototype:
