Arduino hack imitates Pixar’s living lamp, disses IKEA

Posted on Thursday, September 8th, 2011 in Arduino, Prototypes, sensors by the machinegeek


This video shows “The Annoying IKEA LAMP” or SM-1, ArduinoArts’ finalist entry for SeeedStudio’s Grove Toy Kit contest:

Headed by industrial engineer Javier Lander, the project weds two servos (one in the base and one in the lamp), sensors for motion and sound, a three axis accelerometer, LED light and audio board to an Arduino shield, springing the modjob to programmed states of alarm and irritation.

You can read all the details about this project from the ArduinoArts SM-1 page.

Thanks Hoz! Via the contact form via Engadget.

    Ian, it seems not to be the right video…

  2. This reminds me of Jon Foote’s robotic desklamps project, which he debuted at Maker’s Faire 2011. Here’s a link : http://rotormind.com/blog/2011/Robotic-Desklamps-at-the-Maker-Faire/
