Step 5: Prototyping the Light:

I cannot emphasize enough the importance of working iteratively when integrating electronics into a project. If you are unsure of any element of your project, test that system as a stand alone, and then collate it into your project once that particular element proves to be functional. No one wants do tons of work on a project that ultimately could fail.

It was fortuitous that Jacob Stanley was here working on his project (Insert link once it is posted.), and that he had lots of bits and bobs of LED strips and electronics around for me to tinker with.

I dug around the collection's wood library to find a small dowel rod to affix small scraps of LED strip to. I also found a clamp lamp with no light or reflection dish.

Time to get to work!
