It's a lamp... It's a tutu... It's KNAPPA TUTU!

I hacked this iconic Ikea lamp and LEDs together into a tutu that glows in response to your moves! Learn how to make your own and light up the dance floor!

Step 1: Get Ready

I was wandering around Ikea one day and thought 'That lamp looks oddly like a skirt!’ 50 bucks later, I was putting the petal of the beautiful knappa lamp together into a tutu. And since it was a lamp, of course it needs some lights… rainbow blinky lights!

Excited? Let's get dressed! Gather:

  1. Two Ikea Knappa Pendant Lamps www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/60071344/
  2. Adafruit NeoPixel Digital RGB LED Strip http://www.adafruit.com/category/168
    I chose the White 60 LED version
  3. Sparkfun Arduino Mini Pro 5V, or the equivalent http://www.adafruit.com/category/168
  4. Sparkfun ADXL335 http://www.adafruit.com/category/168 USB cable (to plug into external battery pack and power the system up )
  5. 14 gauge wire, or other stiff wire 3mm in diameter, about waist circumstance in length.
  6. Zip ties
<p>This is so cool! What code did you use? </p>
