X10 horizontal mini blind controller
« on: February 09, 2010, 06:29:52 PM »

Does anybody know of any projects doing this?

I saw this hack and it inspired me:
http://www-personal.umich.edu/~apathak/shades/

I was thinking the circuit and the programming of the ATtiny are easy enough, but what about a power source and an x10 module?

Is there an x10 module that could control a servo? I know servos go to different angles based on pulse width modulation. Could a dimming lamp module output be converted to PWM somehow? hmmmmm

EDIT: Ahh, I could use a cheap arduino or build my own augmented AVR microcontroller and use a 2-way controller:
