A project from my artist-in-residence work at UMakers Makerspace:
This Lumos lamp houses an infrared (IR) sensor that powers the LED strip when the sensor picks up on waves emitted from an IR bulb inside a wand. This project was inspired by a desire to learn more about electronic components: I wanted to try out IR sensors and design a circuit implementing them. Another interesting feature of this project is homemade LED sequins: I wanted to test the efficacy of soldering surface mount LEDs to solder wick loops before sewing them onto leather to create LED strips (hint: success).
