Colour sensor + LED strip video

[UPDATE] RGB Slider – LED Strip with RGB slider 

As requested here is an example of my colour sensor in continuous mode setting the colours of the LED strip. The code below uses the tweaks shown in these two posts:

[UPDATE]: Sarah and Jan emailed me to mention that the 10A@5v power supply is a bit of an overkill. I agree but this is the recommendation from GHI. When I tested my strip on full power it was under 3A@5v . Jan claims his is around 2.6A@5v . This does not account for peak current draw, so you may hit issues, but perhaps the full 10A is a bit much.
