Project Aim

This part of a larger project to get started in electronics, arduino programming, basic woodwork and paper craft. This is essentially the Luminch One

The aim of this project is to create a device that

  • Uses IR to control a lamp
  • Runs off the mains like a lamp
  • Have a decent lampshade design so it can actually be used
  • Replace arduino with cheaper, more permanent alternative

Hardware

  • Any Arduino or compatible hardware
  • Super bright LED
  • IR distance sensor
  • Wood and Tracing paper

Prototypes

The link to the original design has better schematics then I can make but they are posted here for your convenience.

Software

As before the source code to control the lamp from the IR input is posted in the original link.
