Add nRF2401 & Arduino Functionality to Hacked #IKEA Molgan LED Lamp | @IKEAUSA
Or how to turn this:
Thanks to Yveaux for sharing this project over at OpenHardware – Yveaux shows how to turn a cheap, $5 lamp into a project with wireless/radio functionality and Arduino Pro Mini compatibility.
Powered from 3 AAA batteries
Motion PIR sensor, which switches on the LED light for some time when detecting motion.
Nice, compact enclosure
Cheap, approx. E 4,99
Atmel ATmega328P microntroller, compatible with Arduino Pro-Mini
nRF24L01+ 2.4GHz radio module (not WiFi!)
Optional ATSHA204 CryptoAthentication chip
Default sketch implements a MySensors enabled motion sensor
Serial connector for programming sketches
ISP for programming the ATmega directly
LED light function can be removed, either partially or complete, to save battery power
Quite cheap, around E 10,- including Molgan.
The project consists of a custom PCB, which is mounted on top of the original Molgan PCB. I had the custom PCB produced in white, to prevent it from being visible trhough the semi-transparent cover of the Molgan.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
