So, I have always wanted a nice lamp by the side of my bed, Something simple with out any buttons.
Of course this would mean it had to be wireless.I also wanted to use it from my bed but not getting out of my bed to turn it off. So it had to be remote controlled, So I picked up a arduino nano and a IR sensor to help me with the goal.
I have access to my schools laser cutter for this to help me with the materials part and also the making part.
Step 1: Parts
I used for this project:
1X Ardunio (I used a nano to fit in the casing I would make.)
1X Power Supply device (Must be able to support the arduino’s needs)
2X RGB LED (Any type works)
1X PCB or Stripboard ( I used a old lot that did not have a lot soldered on it)
1X IR sensor.
1X IR remote (any kind will do)
1X Acrylic sheet (White)
1X Small acrylic sheet (clear)
1X Sandpaper ( IN case you don’t want to use a laser cutter to fog the clear acrilic)
4X Screws of your choice (What fits in your Wall?)
Step 2: Outer Casing
I had made drawings for this for a while and I decided to use ProDesktop to make this come alive and for this project to really get going.
To do this I had to make a nice curved design that could be cut out on a laser cutter and be made with glue.
