Rolling Lamp Encourages Human Machine Interactions
Sending a massive thanks to Cathy for reaching out to let us know about this absolutely gorgeous build! Cathy writes:
As the final project for a physical computing class, I created a lamp to realize human machine interaction. Combining with RGB color sensor, photoresists, Neopixel strip, and Arduino Uno board, users can customize countless number of colors through throwing spherical objects. For example, cranberry, grape, marble ball, etc. The design intention is to trigger the practice of observing the aesthetic of daily life. It is joyful, healing, and interactive.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
