WI-FI Accent Lamp with Clock

NewImage

Nice project shared on our G+ Community, Makers, Hackers, Artists & Engineers by Jason Nichols. From Instructables:

When I first saw the IKEA FILLSTA lamp I knew I wanted to create some type of LED project with it. It has an interesting look and is a bargain for $13 (USD). I bought one and it sat unused for quite a while. I’ve finally gotten around to using it, and am pretty happy with it as a WI-FI controlled accent lamp and clock.

In this project, I will use an IKEA FILLSTA lamp to create an Adafruit Feather HUZZAH ESP8266 controlled lamp with APA102-C LEDs for the light and a LED matrix time display.

LED Charlieplexed Matrix – 9×16 LEDs – Red: These are 9×16 Charlieplexed LEDs designed to match with the Adafruit 16×9 Charlieplexed PWM LED Matrix Driver – IS31FL3731. You don’t get any resistors or driver chips with this grid, its just a mess of LEDs in a charlieplexed arrangement

Adafruit 16×9 Charlieplexed PWM LED Matrix Driver – IS31FL3731: The IS31FL3731 will let you get back to that classic LED matrix look, with a nice upgrade! This I2C LED driver chip has the ability to PWM each individual LED in a 16×9 grid so you can have beautiful LED lighting effects, without a lot of pin twiddling. Simply tell the chip which LED on the grid you want lit, and what brightness and it’s all taken care of for you. (read more)
