[Daniel Andrade] has built a pretty cool mood lamp circuit. He was initially inspired by [Toon Beerton’s] Ikea lamp, but found he just didn’t have the knowledge to proceed with the PIC processor. He rushed out and bought an arduino to begin learning. Once he figured out how to properly make a mood lamp function, he created a custom circuit to utilize an ATmega chip instead of his whole arduino. He’s now on his second revision of the circuit and is sharing all the files with whoever would like to download them.
His circuit utilizes a 3wRGB LED and any ATmega 8/168/328. He has left some space for expansion on the board as well just in case you’d like to add sensors of some kind (he mentions a temp sensor).

Rly? Mega8 @ 16MHz for driving a LED? This can be done with attiny4… please :/
Because it was developed under Arduino… Why don’t you get the project and release a version with a attiny then?
It’s because it was developed using Arduino… why don’t you get the project then an make with attiny…
No problem, i already made one in 2009, attiny13:

Arduino or not… it is a waste of resources…
I did the same thing. I used the ARM processor. Now, I joined the SD card. To write a sequence for the flashing light bulbs.
I applaud you. Whether or not someone has spent the time to do such a simple project isn’t the issue at hand.
I’m really tired of seeing project made by people abusing the Arduino. It’s only a quick-and-dirty prototyping tool.
is that recycling of video amp transistors from a tube display i see ??? :D way to go!
dammit i spoke too soon
