for the 2016 Maker Faire some kits have been made. This will be the community topic for questions, ideas, suggestions, issues, or pretty much everything else related to the lamp. To get an impression, it looks like this:
It has an Internet Button to for provide connectivity and lighting, and will thus allow you to connect to the web. The general idea is to be able to pair multiple of these up, so you can change them all at once, even/especially if you’ve given one away as a gift. It can also act as a wake-up light or just a ‘regular’ desk light.
The github containing the code can be found here, where pull requests are highly welcome:
Let me know what you guys think!
