Deus Ex Candelabra Mk I (complete)


  • Three cheap RGB LED beads in series

Looks like a child's drawing close up.

  • Adafruit HUZZAH ESP8266
  • Generic SK6812 3535 strip or WS2812 5050 boards
  • Firmware from Jason Coon's GitHub (still under active development; need to find approach to program LED arrangement

Magnifier visor light boost


  • QX5252F and appropriate inductor

Nana's flickering table lamp

Decorative wooden screens

Rationale: to decoratively box in the stuff stored on cupboard at top of stairs

Will use laser cutter to cut 3 mm plywood boards. I need to find settings (e.g. laser power to minimum necessary to cut through) to minimise the scorching/burning off the wood. I need to learn how to focus the laser cutter with my remaining eye.
