I made this project because my cousin is afraid of the dark. This nightlight has a couple leds but it does the job. Customize the arduino any way you like. This is a quick 5 minute project. Nothing to special. You can hang it over a crib/bed, doorway, decoration or wherever you imagination takes you!
My answers to; Make to learn
What did you make?
I've made a simple programmed nightlight. It runs arduino and it keeps the "boogie man" away.
How did you make it?
I was inspired to make this by dablondeemus's
instructable. I turned this into a quick project. I worked by myself on this, and I did change one idea. Instead of polyfill for the cloud I used cottonballs. Cotton balls are of easy access to me.
Where did you make it?
I made this 100% at home. This project connected to other parts of my life with the arduino. I hope to one day be an inventor, and have most of my prototypes run arduino.
What did you learn?
I learned how to do simple programming on the arduino. I really didn't have any surprises during the build except for putting the WRONG
glue on the plastic container! The biggest problem I had was running out of cotton balls. If I had to do it again, I would have it run a more complicated arduino.
