A couple of mounts ago i order a 1M long WS2801 RGB led strip, just for fun.
I took me a while to get the strip working with my Arduino.
The next step was to figure out what to do with the strip.
after some time the idea came to me: a Bluetooth controllable floor lamp.
I ordered 4 extra bright ‘warm’ White Led strips, in order to make the Floor lamp useable on a daily basis.
I need to say, I made this lamp a couple of months ago,
before I head the intension to put in on here.
this mean I did not take much pictures or draw sketches.
