Mood Lamp


    After I made my Kitchen Mood Light,  I had another idea for 3W RGB LED's.  My idea was to make a simple lamp with 3W RGB LED's, controlled by a MCU, and have an IR remote control to change the color, effects and patterns. 

I found a nice lamp and spent a lot of time doing modifications to fit the LED's into it. I finally made something very nice – you can see them in the pictures below.  The code and electronics were very simple; the hardest thing was to make something that looked good.  You will see in the pictures that I have made 2 different lamps.


  • 3W RGOver 16 million colors can be generated
  • Very powerful.
  • Many patterns are pre-programmed
