Introduction: The Amazing Light Cub With Usb Swiches

Picture of The Amazing Light Cub With Usb Swiches

As part for my final project during the first grade of architecture,I design the last cube of 8, which form the great cubotron, a way to bring the living room of your homeanywhere

Between the cubes that form the cubotron we find: a hub for cerbeza fridge, a TV cube retro-Spanish style, a chain of music cube 4 cube benches and stools, and the cube of light and energy, the heart of this tutorial .

Our buckets are echos Bascio with cardboard, but 3 sides of the cube of light and energy are made of cloth, to illuminate.
to get light reacting with the user in the buckets, tube to develop a usb switches, which work by charging cable plug any usb or device and that's what I intend to explain here.

First I needed a way to integrate a charger multiusb in the bucket into the bucket had a battery of 12 volts, so I could feed the light, the USB charguer, the arduino and the TV cube.

I use the Arduino, a switch and a servo to operate the trap door to appear usb, as seen in the video.

and now comes what seemed complicated, but easily solved,

The easiest thing to make a switch using a USB hardware is to divide the external usb female body into two separate halves, so that when you insert the usb male body, joints the two halves toguether. a wire in each half of the female creates a switch quite functional, You Can Carefully cut it using dremel.

In the video you can see, the door and the ligh sides working with the usb swiches (
