Arduino - Vintage Lamp #1

This is my second project that uses the Arduino platform, Bluetooth connectivity, and a custom iPhone app.

I built the box out of anodized aluminum. The base and top are pine boards through which I passed about 2000 volts of electricity. This so called "Lichtenberg" technique causes dendritic patterns to be burned into the wood. I then filled the charred valleys with glow-in-the-dark resin.




The iPhone app for this lamp allows for four separate functions:
• Ring the bell
• Blink the front LEDs
• Move the meter's needle
• Turn the lights on/off
