Recently while in NYC I spotted the Miffy Lamp in a store window.
Since it only used white colored LEDs, I decided to replace them with a Neopixel Ring from Adafruit. This ring has 12 RGB LEDs and Adafruit’s sample code had me up and running in no time.
The last part I added was a 1k pot so I could dim the light.
The bottom already had 3 screw holes and the main hole. I didn’t need to make any new holes, just make the existing ones bigger. I put everything inside and screwed down the pot, adding a knob. I also cut plastic cover from scrap and screwed it in place.
Now I have a Miffy Lamp in my living room that automatically changes it’s color based on the temperature.
