DIY HDMI ambient lighting using the miniSpartan6+ by Dr X

Dr X, over at the Zero Characters Left blog, has built an LED ambient lighting system.

The miniSpartan6+ is used to process incoming HDMI video, calculate average colors, and drive a strand of LEDs¬† that you can put on the back of your display.¬† It’s also a great project to learn how to handle HDMI video with the miniSpartan6+.
