Light Outside the Box, Interactive Light Sculpture with #Arduino #ArduinoMonday

Cool project from Amanda Lee on vimeo:

“Light Outside the Box” is a take on the saying ‘think outside the box’ which entails thinking creatively from a new perspective. This interactive light sculpture is designed to look different, from different angles. The structure was welded out of 1.5” steel square tubing, and reflects the clean-cut, conventional and urban box culture in our society today. Hidden inside the structure are 4 COB LED strips, 4 MaxSonar-EZ0 distance sensors (situated every 90˚), 1 Arduino, and 4 Tip122 chips. The strong LEDs cast shadows off the structure, and onto the floor and walls surrounding it. Viewers are able to walk around the piece to cast shadows of their own. LED strips becomes dimmer as people go closer. This demonstrates how humans are compelled to that which is conventional, and how we see less when we are only in the presence of the conventional – we are not able to see the bigger picture or think creatively.

50-06Each Monday is ArduinoMonday here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Arduino related products. Adafruit manufactures the Arduino right here in the United States in cooperation with arduino.cc. We have a huge selection of Arduino accessories and all the code and tutorials to get you up and running in no time!


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.
