Improved servos, greater control and (most importantly) more annoying
Javier Lander sent in this update to his annoying IKEA lamp that we recently featured. As the above video demonstrates, the Arduino equipped IKEA hack is more animated and indeed more annoying than ever before.
Also known as the SM-1 Project over at ArduinoArts, the lamp now boasts improved servo control, a manual mode using a 3-axis accelerometer and even lights in the base for some extra bling.
Clearly still a work in progress, Javier is dreaming big here with a growing list of upcoming improvements. Head over to the source to see just how annoying this lamp is going to get, along with some great photos of all the components that make the magic happen.
