This is my second instructable: Arduino chandelier from mini jars. My first one was my : Cuckoo Alarm Clock from Hard Drive.
I wanted to give my room some special design, with mooth lighting so when I had the option to use RGB leds and a Arduino board I decided I needed my own making a chandelier.
Step 1: Intro: Gallery
Before we get started we are going to need a little bit of motivation, take a look at these pictures and realize what you will be making.
This project very tedious and time consuming. Any time that you get frustrated while making this project, take a deep breath, come back to this step, take a look at the pictures and remember what you are working towards!
Step 2: Materials List
Here is what you need to make your chandelier:
- PCB sheet
- Arduino mini 5V
- USB Serial Light Adapter or Arduino Uno, Duemillanove or something similar to act as a HOST (detachable Chip!!)
- RGB Leds (50 pcs)
- 8-bit shift register 74hc595d SMD (19 pcs)
- Octal Bus Transceiver 74hc245d SMD
- Electrolytic Decoupling Capacitors - 100uF/16V
High capacity rechargeable battery
- Acrylic sheet
- Spray paint
- Copper wire
- Insulation Sleeving
- Mini jars (50 pcs)
- Drill bits
