This is the lamp that I thought, designed, created and assembled for the competition.
The main objective was to create a lamp that respected the competition criteria and at the same time was completely different from the original one. This for two simple reasons: I do not have an Arduino Nano and not even Neopixels and in this period it is difficult, here in Italy, to obtain non-essential items. I therefore opted to make a lamp by recycling as many pieces as possible, looking for the waste that, my goodness, I had not yet thrown in the bin.
A second objective was to be able to use the standard parts to assemble the lamp, for this you will find between the files to be printed two types of base, one specific for this version the other redesigned to accommodate the Arduino Nano and Neopixel.
This lamp, unlike the Electromaker one, does not foresee particular light effects (which are typical of Neopixels), however there are two light sections, one in the stem the other in the shade, in the stem it is possible, through the appropriate potentiometer, to adjust the intensity of the LEDs from completely off to completely lit; on the lampshade, on the other hand, it will be possible to adjust, always using the appropriate potentiometer, the flashing frequency of the LEDs. The switch turns off both effects.
