    It's sad to see the original Dev of the Razer Ambilight has stopped working on the app....
    I actually bought the HDK to make it mirror my monitor, but I have not found a way to do so... yet.

    I think many others would like to see the same, it either being integrated into the synapse app or if someone could make the renewal of the Razer Ambilight, so we can enjoy the colors more!

    I really hope someone could do this!

    Best Regards,

    This someone could be you, that is if you're willing to spend numerous hours writing, troubleshooting and testing

    Heh, I really wish I could, I know nothing about coding but I do know its hard to do, but there arealready some awesome plugins out there, just being abandoned, Would be awesome if someone could pick up those, but then they need to find the oroginal creator for that.

    I’d even pay for it if it would be released as app, but not sure if that may be done by razers guidelines

    Oh, didnt know they had it also, like Logitech with their speakers, hmmm, I dont get why Razer doesnt have it yet, they would probably get a lot more people to buy it then, since its very nice to have...

    Wow, you got some nice project working back there. It would be cool if you could manage to make it work properly, best of luck with it!

    Oh that looks neat so far, hows the project going until now? is it currently single color that it's showing or is it taking multiple colors at once? not really see-able in the video?

    Keep up the good work though, really hope to see it soon, would finally be able to use the HDK more since it only uses rainbow color now :/

    It takes an average of all the pixels and looks for the most prominent colour on screen. I had another video of it working with a music video. I'll see if I can find it.

    It would be super terrific, if you could share your (finished or beta) application! Are you planning to do so? Actually this feature was the sole purpose of buying my BlackWidow X..... Your support is much appreciated!

    Would love to hear from you!
