Just wanted to share a labor of love I’ve been working on for the past month or so. It’s a night light/table center-piece/ whatever you want it to be LED illuminaire.
Acrylic rods over an individually addressable LED matrix (WS2812b) encased in a single solid piece of acrylic and driven by an Arduino Nano. I shaved down the acrylic over each LED to just a few millimeters to create a natural diffusing lens over each LED.
It also reacts to external lights sources (and sometimes its own…still working on that). When there is a lot of light it gets brighter and vice versa. The patterns and colors are completely random and the Arduino script is based off DedeHai’s original linked here. More of my work can be found at www.codyryandesign.com. You can also Instagram follow me @codyryandesign. Thank you for letting me share!
Huge thanks to my brilliant girlfriend Jessica for standing in for a few shots!
