Thanks to Rober for sharing his project with us! He writes:

Here is some photos of a project that I made using products from Adafruit. Our living room does not have wall switches to turn on and off the lights. When coming home in the dark my wife and I would be fumbling for the on off switch on the wires for the lamps in the room. I used an Arduino connected to a Raspberry Pi to control the lamps in the room. The Arduino receives the input from the switches and tells the Pi if the lamps are on or off. I by using a Pi and Arduino I can use the switches or my tablet (via rdp) to turn on and off the lights.

We decorated our home with antiques and I wanted the tech to incorporate with our style. I used an antique cigar box as the storage container for the electronics and hold the switches. My wife was happy with the outcome. I used the lighted momentary switch and have the LEDs turn on when the lamp is off. I cannot make the Wednesday Show and Tell because of work but wanted to share this with you all anyway.
