Description

Tentacle lamp brainchild of Michele Massimo Cicorella (member of the Fablab Bologna and MakeInBo), electronics, maker, robotics and animatronics passionate... and also an artist.

One day, fiddling with a table lamp (the ones that we all used at least once to write, study, read, and why not , solder components on printed circuit boards), a question flashed in his mind... "As it would have a lamp that allows me to intelligently brighten my workbench?"

In practice, how it behaves TL 2.0? TL is to all effects a designer lamp, turn on, behaves and off in a particular way. With one hand. But without direct contact. TL is equipped with sensors that allow it to interact at a short distance with the user. Just bring your palms to the "head" of the lamp for a few seconds to turn it on, and she will follow your movements... curious at this point you can adjust the amplitude of the light beam and lock it in the position you prefer. She will remain there and watch until you decide to turn it off. Always with a gesture.

Tentacle Lamp is composed by a tentacle with a led bulb on the top. When you want to move the light point, you just need a hand movement, the lamp follows it until you move it away.

Why 2.0?

Because is second version of my tentacle lamp.

My first version used Arduino Mega, but in this version i used Intel Edison... this little upgrade allows to give more remote controlling features: for example, turning the TLamp on or off, upgrade the software with changes and improvements over-the-air, etc...
