Responsive LED Backlight With Arduino and Python

Working at night on the computer can be harsh on the eyes. When I worked late, the contrast between the monitor and the dark room strained my eyes. As a solution, I created this responsive monitor backlight: it aims to reduce contrast by illuminating the area behind the monitor, and responds to what is displayed on the screen. If the screen is dim, the backlight is dim, if the screen is primarily red, so is the backlight.
This project is easy to make if you have basic knowledge of arduino and simple circuits. Some basic knowledge of python programming would help, but is not necessary. This is a good way to learn about controlling leds with arduino programming.
