I wanted to experiment with using different color LEDs, other than the standard RGB, to create multi-color effects in a functional lamp.
This lamp uses Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, Purple, Aqua-Green, and Blue 5mm LEDs along with an upper and lower White 12v LED strip. Each of the colors and upper/lower LED strips are all individually controllable with 8-bit PWM. Using a 8 Channel LED controller v.3
with the MonoMotion Software
, patterns are easily created and uploaded to utilize this custom configuration. A few patterns were made that cycles the various LED colors, or utilizes the white LED strips for functional light. More details on Step 5.
Created from an 8 Channel LED controller v.3
, a broken solar garden light, a white plastic cup, a disc of MDF, and a plastic base from an old toy.
