One aspect of Lego is that you need some space to play. At some point I had used an Ikea Lack with a 48×48 Lego baseplate for my son play. But quickly ran out of space and were constantly falling to the ground. So I decided to create a larger Lago Play Table with the future possibility of having storage.
For some time now I’ve been trying to change the lighting in the kitchen counter. It uses halogen lamps and wasn’t practical. So I decided to replace it with a LED strip. In order to automate it i added a wemos. Let’s begin.
For some time ago I had three Lack shelves, one white, one yellow and one blue from Ikea. They were stored with no specific purpose. Since I was in need of a shelf for the office, i create a stand and recycle them. For this I used three 4cm by 4cm of pine.
In the last halloween I decided to create a project for the season. Using a 3D model of a ghost that i printed on the Prusa i3 and the Cheerlights project i created a Halloween decoration that changes color randomly.
The Cheerlight project is an open-source project that synchronizes all light devices that use’s it. Through Twitter, using the #cheerlight hashtag, we chose a color from the Cheerlights project color palette. All devices that are connected to the project Cheerlights read the color through the api and change their color to that. Through a tweet it is possible to change the colors of all the devices of the planet connected to the project.
One of the problems in photography is exposure. For a good photography a controlled environment is required, both at the light and at the environment level.
To solve the location problem I have acquired a lightbox, which allows you to define several uniform backgrounds to create contrast. But it was still necessary to solve the question of luminosity. For this I built my own lighting system, used Ikea frames, led strips and some components.
