DIY Philips Ambilight TV – Ikea LED Dioder kit

Home made Ambilight TV


Whilst Philips has their Ambilight TV range, having a glowing lightshow of colour behind your screen comes as at a cost. A creative guy by the name of Marc Lane of IkeaHacker has created an alternative. Making use of an Ikea bookcase turned sideways and a IKEA LED Dioder kit, it makes for a unique cheaper option.

Naturally the Philips solution is a little more advanced with it’s colours being an extension of the image currently being displayed on the screen. Still, Marc’s looks great and is a good alternative.
