Open Source Hardware Mood Lamp

Daniel Andrade really liked the mood lamp designed by Toon Beerten, and set out to make his own version.

I’ve built the breadboard prototype, then the first version, using only one layer (which is a good version if you want to etch your own PCB). Always wanted to make the project public as an Open Hardware, but due my lack of time, I never did, until I arrive in Genova. I then decided to make a second version of the board, two layers, the ability to program the µC without removing it from the socket (for programing you will need an Arduino, FTDI or USB-to-serial cable) and some available pins for those who want’s to add more features to the board, like a temperature sensor or another kind of sensor.

Check out his website here for video examples of the hardware in action, all of the design files, parts breakdown, and code.
