Introduction: Voice Controlled Mushroom
This project is a mix of 3D printing and Arduino.
I hereby call this the Andromeda Kinoko
Step 1: Thingiverse
Start by going to thingiverse, here is my file, http://www.thingiverse.com/make:196257
Credit goes to Toshio Fuji for the kinoko design!!
Decide what colors you want your kinoko's, I chose to use my photo-chromatic PLA because I utilized UV led bulbs in the design.
Step 2: Breadboard
While your printer is working, all day, start making your breadboard.
Above is mine though I want to redo it and ensure all connectors are going into PWM outputs so that I can do more LED tricks like making them breathe.
I am using:
USB to power at first
5 UV led bulbs
200 ohm resistor
Step 3: Portable
If able, utilize a 9v battery or 4 AA batteries to power your light around the house!
USB is only 5v, it is best to send 12v into arduino (so I am told)
Step 4: Bring It Together
Wire up your light and turn on your computer,..lets code!
I utilized a fellow Instructable member: ASCAS (thank you sir)
attached is the sketch to voice control your new kinoko (Japanese for mushroom) lamp!
The app I use to control the lamp is AMR_Voice easily found on app searches!
Have fun, let me know if you write some fun code for your kinoko!
Step 5: Make It Officaial
For not much money I was able to get a perf. board and make my first PCB. Just like making a breadboard but you get to learn how to solder and make jumpers!
We have a be nice policy.
Please be positive and constructive.
