Check out some of Team Sidney Enterprises’ projects below.
This lamp is based on a design from John Baichtal, author of Minecraft for Makers. It is a laser-cut plywood box, spraypainted with laser-cut templates. Inside is an RGB LED, controlled by a nearby control box containing an Arduino with a custom PCB shield and two pots: one to control the brightness, and another to control the speed of the color changing effect.
Laser-cut Acrylic LED lamp
This was our quickest project – one day! It is a laser-cut wood base containing an RGB LED strip with a remote control. A laser-etched acrylic sheet sits atop the base and is lit from below.
Raspberry Pi Day/Night Clock
This is a clock based on a Raspberry Pi mated with a Pimoroni Unicorn HAT HD 16x16 RGB LED display. It shows different images depending on the time of day, to help Sidney’s little brother know when he’s allowed to get out of bed in the morning.
