About: Self learning person dreaming of engineering

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:

Arduino Uno

HC-05 bluetooth

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!

    hmmmmm, awww. I love science projects but science was never my field. I wish there was an easier form of science without complicated formulas I hardly understand. it doesn't stop me from giving all the beautiful science projects a big love and vote. woulda given more if there was a way.

    Instructables.com is the new "science", just need to follow the instructions....then sit back and ponder the science.

    Looks awesome, but I am a little confused. Can you switch the Kinoko Lamp on/off with your voice or can you also control the brightness as well?

    Should also say the reason I want to wire the lights into the PWM slots is so that I can pulse the lights, as I understand only those spots can you adjust voltage....I may be wrong but you can pulse!

    The code right now allows for turning all on all off and individually.
    I am currently working on code to pulse the lights and one that will have them do math and display the answer with blinks!

    Thank you for providing all of this information. I have been tempted by many LED projects yet daunted because of my total lack of knowledge: now I might just try one!

    That means the world to me thanks, I am teaching myself these sciences and am driven to share. Have fun and thanks again!
