Rave Lamp

Filed under: Exercise 0: Make A Lamp — marcmanzke @ 11:54 pm

We collaborated to produce a lamp made of 1 inch acrylic with press-fit LED bores. The result is a lens that both diffuses and displays the LED units.

Things: wires, 5 LEDs

We were excited to test a way to replicate RGB color mixing. We werent sure how to fade, but were very happy with the blinking results that we achieved. We experimented with a random number generator to create uneven flashes. Each LED color was assigned a different digital port, and each port was given a different time value. The result is very intriguing.
