Build a 16 million color WiFi-controlled LED lamp

Posted on Sunday, December 7th, 2014 in 3D fabrication, how-to, LEDs, open source by the machinegeek

Tom Van den Bon and Sebastian Schocke of Binary Space, a makerspace in the Vaal Triangle, have put together this build challenge for their members.

For December at Binary Space we wanted to do something a cheerful and colourful. We got together to design and build a low power LED table or ceiling lamp that connects to your home WiFi. Once assembled and connected you can change the colour tone to any one of 16 million colours from the RGB gamut.

The project is designed around a Nucleo STM32 Development Board, an ESP8266 Wifi Module and a set of WS2811 RGB LEDs, and is housed in a 3D printed enclosure.

Details can be found in their post on the Makes Htxt blog.
