Ikea Night Light controlled by an Android Phone

at 6:48 pm. Filed under Cool Gadgets, DIY Hacks, Electronic Hacks

 

If you ever wanted a way to control your night light from across the room you are in luck. Dan reverse engineered his Ikea night light and stuffed in a bunch of electronics so that it can now be controlled by an Android Phone. Of course remote control is just the beginning, a smart Android app could now easily use it to display the status of many things.

“It’s about a simple idea: take a cheap 3 colours Ikea night lamp, hack it by replacing its original MCU and adding a cheap serial bluetooth device and then write a simple Android app to control the lamp remotely from your phone !

This is just the beginning, imagine the possibilities once the phone has direct control over the colours and their respective intensities. You can make it light up in sync with some music, you can make it change colours depending on some e-mails you receive or your Facebook status, etc. …”
