Color changing lamp

Design, Making, Interactive, Tangible

A color changing lamp I created using an Arduino kit, a NeoPixels LED strip, paper layers and a wooden frame. The lamp changes color periodically, according to the time. Using the LED strip I created a light pannel which is controled by an arduino board and an RTC( real time clock). The decorative part was made using thick paper which I cut by hand using an extractor knife and assembled in different layers using foam board in between. The reason I worked on this project was because I wanted to explore the posibilities of using a programmable LED strip together with an Arduino.
