Getting Started with Electronics
Electronics Tools and Materials
Single Motor Bot
Basic Electronics Skills for Robotics
Didn't have a fly swatter, wheels or bolts! So used a spatula, an LED strip real and made the back wheels out of cardboard! But it goes...
Still waiting for EL Screen to arrive, so I've got my McRoboFace Programmed and will stick that on by bin for now!
LEDs and Lighting Class
Electronics Crash Course
My Canoe Tub (Waterproof Container) how has a glow! And I can find things in the dark now...
Fun project, going to try making it flash now!
Didn't want a pipe lamp sorry, but I used all the principles you listed above, and I used something we had handy to create the stand (used a Dremel to cut open the bottom of the bottle and smooth it off for the Arduino and cable), now looking at the Arduino to act as a dimmer, as the bulb we had spare was a bit bright
Lots of smoke when I burnt the insulation :-(
Project: Infinity Mirror
Your First Experiments
It's not pretty! Just waiting for the reflective acrylic and hot glue gun(hence the electrician's tape) but it works, and now programming the lights to fade and change colour
Had to use blu tac to keep the motor steady but worked a treat
Went all colourful
Not really, I prefer scenics and interesting buildings - but I'll make a visit to our local Lowry Art Gallery and see if they'll let me take some photo's and experiment
Yeah, I'm trying different LED combinations now too, as well as an LED String on a metal clothes hanger to different angles and luminosity!
I used a white serving tray that I had with no foil on the image I uploaded. I'm now trying different coverings to see what results I get.

Head On (ish), Downward Angle (one bottle less now) and a Birds Eye
Switched from Sunlight to Cloud
Leading Lines, the downward flow of the water on the weir, meeting the boil at the bottom and the water line, reinforced with the shadows
Tried a single sharp light and then experimented with 3 and got opposing shadows, but the 3rd light wasn't bright enough, but fun
Natural Light Behind, Diffused reflector in front, not a dark silhouette - i deserve a drink!
