Arduino Kit Mood Lamp

Today we are making the Arduino mood lamp from the kit with a few alterations. This Lamp will change colors fluidly. Note that this is not my code, and I will show you where I got the code Here (click for code if the code on this Instructable does not work).

Teacher Notes

Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: Gather Supplies

The first thing is to gather materials. you will need-

  • 10 jumper wires-

5 of them 5 in

4 of them 1 in

1 of them 2 in

  • 3 220 resistors
  • 3 10k resistors
  • RGB (Red Blue Green) light
  • Arduino Uno/Genuino
  • small bbreadboard

  • Tape
  • Paper
  • scissors

Step 2: Add First Wires

Step 3: Add Resistors

Step 4: More Wires and the RGB

Step 5: Add the Code

The code for the arduino lamp is from this sight. The code came from his portal 2 companion cube mood lamp, which is pretty cool. I will also post a link to get to the Arduino website in case you are interested in buying an arduino.

Thanks!

    Hmm, I have the same code but different wiring with my project. I'm using the way you wired it and see what happens, cause right now its not shifting colors and just blinking, I'm guessing because of the toutoral I follow had a different Arduino :/. This is great! :PP

    I tried the wiring, first time I did it it didn't work but I was because I missed a wire. When I did a different wiring, it would only glow green and blue, then only green. When I tried the wiring a second time, it still glowed green. Problebly because one of this legs on the RGB LED was um... broken off...
