This project consisted of building a lamp that would change colors based on ambient volume. The lamp was created as a group exercise in implementing sensors to build an environmentally responsive prototype and provide documentation that would allow future users to replicate and elaborate on the design.
I led brainstorming and design exercises and built, tested, and filmed the lamp with two peers who also helped build and program the lamp. The lamp uses an Arduino, adafruit microphone, and neopixel lights.
Initial brainstorming of designs
Grouping similar designs into categories
Selecting three best designs: furniture edges, butterfly, or simple and abstract form
Detailed sketches of concepts
Constructing the prototype
