For this project an arduino was programmed to control a ring of 12 LEDs. Several software updates have been implemented through out the life of this gadget. The current program runs the lights through a loop of gradual color changes with minimal blue light. As the lights progress in color, the light intensity slowly pulsates. This gives the light an almost life like characteristic–as if the light was breathing.
The enclosure is made from an opaque acrylic. The acrylic disperses the light to soften and blend the individual LEDs.
