A Connected Lamp to Wake Me Up

So for some reason I bought 2 IKEA lamps at a flea market. As IKEA furniture has a long history of being hacker-friendly, I figured they shouldn't be an exception to the rule. My plan? Fit a few 10W RGB LEDs in there together with an ESP8266 to use the final result as an alarm clock.When you are dealing with a LED consuming that much current, you can't simply use a series resistor as the latter would need t ...
