Let dream a baby

Low cost project to give some light effects to a sky

Sensor hacks

Sensor hacks

I am using many sensors in this project and I am not really happy with the sensitivity of them. TEMT6000 Problem: This sensor should get the value of the light similar to the human eye. The output goes from 0V (night) to 5V (direct sun light). In a room, if some clouds are present, the outputRead more about Sensor hacks[…]

Sky 99%

Sky 99%

After 2 weeks of vacation in Kreta and soldering the last LEDs, I am glad to say: “all 60 LEDs are connected!”. Here a video of the current sky with the 3 programmed animations: night, day/rainbow, rain. The app to control the sky is on the Windows Store: Download App There are 10 LEDs reservedRead more about Sky 99%[…]

Some tests

The project

The project

After playing a lot with Arduino and  LED strips (WS2812b) I decided to create a sky plate for my baby. Arduino is now the BEST microcontroller you can find on the market to drive simple sensors. So what can I ask to do at my 10$-Arduino? Attach 4-5 clouds on the sky, each with 60Read more about The project[…]
