Miguel’s lamp consists of an Arduino-controlled RGB light strip.

Shows the operation of an RGB lamp using a digital LED strip. After activating the bluetooth, open the application to control the lamp.
The program shows a hue palette divided into 30 rods: one for each LED from the strip.

Click and drag the mouse cursor to make your own patterns. Clicking on a rod while the spacebar is pressed removes the color (switch off this led).

Part list: wooden support (optional), RGB digitally-addressable LED strip (from Adafruit or Pololu…), microcontroller (arduino pro mini, for example), Bluetooth .OR. Xbee .OR. an USB wire.

I absolutely love how Miguel visualized the lamp in watercolor paint (the link above, scroll down) and think more makers should do that. [via Arduino]
