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.

Adafruit Feather HUZZAH with ESP8266 WiFi: Feather is the new development board from Adafruit, and like its namesake it is thin, light, and lets you fly! We designed Feather to be a new standard for portable microcontroller cores.

This is the Adafruit Feather HUZZAH ESP8266 – our take on an ‘all-in-one’ ESP8266 WiFi development board with built in USB and battery charging. Its an ESP8266 WiFi module with all the extras you need, ready to rock! We have other boards in the Feather family, check’em out here. (read more)

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)
