Miffy Lamp

Miffy

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.

I also paired it with a Jeenode so I could get the weather from my weather station.
I also needed a level shifter as the Jeenode is 3.3 v and the Neopixel runs on 5v.

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.
