Make Your Own LED Bluetooth Cloud Lamp

1

If you are unable or unwilling to spend over $3k on one of Richard Clarkson’s interactive thunderstorm cloud lamps, Eclectical Engineering has provided a way for you to obtain a reasonable facsimile – although it will reqiure some DIY chops.

Their homemade Bluetooth Cloud Light utilizes an Arduino Uno, Adafruit’s NeoPixel strips and a body fashioned from spherical paper lanterns covered with polyester fiber. The result allows users to program the light’s LEDs to create flags and Aurora Borealis effects, as well as Fart from Rick & Morty.

See how it’s done in the video below.
