Frameless Laser Harp

We are a generation that love sound and light – can’t do without them really. Our most preferred time of day is night, or what we would call evening. We are particularly well acquainted with technology; doesn’t hurt these days. Our prerequisite for everything is that it be ‘cool’. Put it all together and in a stroke of brilliance, and a little help from our friend the internet, we have the ideal solution – ...

I have always enjoyed the various acrylic laser-cut night lights that others have made. Thinking more about these I thought that it would be great if the night light could also double as a form of entertainment. With this is mind I decided to create jigsaw puzzle that would fit into a thin box that would then be illuminated by an LED strip. Regarding the actual lighting, I wanted the LEDs to slowly cycle th ...

Dutch 8×8 Word Clock

I know that I am not the first to make a word clock, using an Arduino. Still it was always something on my 'to do' list to make a Dutch one. For a different project I've bought a 'colorduino / rainbowduino / funduino' a long time ago to test something. This gave me the inspiration to make an 8 x 8 word clock. I noticed now that I am also not te first to make a 8 x 8 word clock and not the first to make a Du ...

It was originally just going to be made of cardboard, but you know how these things go. We’re happy the design went this far, because that blaster looks fantastic. Both the blaster and the target run on Arduino Nanos. There’s a 5mW laser module in the ...

Totally Lit – Programmable RGB LED Acrylic Sign

https://youtu.be/AcvpgUQGPn4 Been playing around with the laser cutter/engraver, and really fell in love with engraving in to clear acrylic and shining a light source from the edge. The thickness of the acrylic being used is a .25" sheet, which cuts really cleanly by the laser cutter/engraver (the one that I had access to is the Trotec 300). Started off with a simple OPEN sign with a single light colour sou ...
