Datelite Calendar Controlled Lamp by Cody Moore

Home > Winners > #50537


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Datelite

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Calendar Controlled Lamp

INSPIRATION:
My sister is very happily married, and has three beautiful little girls. However, both her and her husband work very hard to support them, and as a result rarely ever get to spend time together as a family. For Christmas I built them a computer controlled lamp, powered by a Raspberry Pi, that would remind them of the most special memories that they shared together. This was in the hope that the lamp and the knowledge it brought would bring their family closer together.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Datelite subtly reminds you of special moments through the manipulation of light. Every day the lamp remains on, emitting a cool glow; but some days are not like others. During meaningful days, such as birthdays and anniversaries, the halo of light spreads farther across the wall and illuminates the room with bright light.  If you have forgotten the occasion at hand, simply rotate Datelite counterclockwise using the raised handle. The light dims and a simple, hidden display reminds you.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Datelite is always partially illuminated, but lights up fully on meaningful days to you and your family.   If you see the lamp is fully illuminated, and you realize that you have forgotten the occasion at hand, place your hand under the raised section and rotate the lamp counterclockwise. This dims the light and signifies the you are turning back the clock to reveal the memory. The light moves from the outside to the inside, illuminating a simple display that communicates the event.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started during the summer of 2014, and Version 1 was complete by christmas. The project later underwent extensive design changes, and was officially completed the summer of 2016.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Lighting Products and Lighting Projects Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
After creating the initial working prototype for my sister and her husband, I decided to rework the entire design for a more elegant approach. Sketches and foam models were instrumental to the design process, which was eventually fully realized with a combination of 2D and 3D rendering programs.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
350mm x 350mm x 100mm Digital

TAGS:
Lamp, Light, Family, Home, Interior

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
-

CHALLENGE:
The most challenging aspect of this project was programming the computer for the initial prototype of the lamp. Without prior knowledge of coding or PCB I spent several weeks creating and testing the lamp while integrating an iPhone application interface. It was an incredible learning experience, without the effort of which this project could not have been brought to fruition.
