Chase’s version of the PS 2014 lamp, activated by motion. First, he NaNoed it into a desk lamp and rigged up the pulley system to a servo so it can open and close using a sensor programmed using Ardiuno.

The original light which was just a standard bulb was also changed into a 7cm circular ring LED strip, to save space in the lamp cavity.

A 5v sonar sensor acts as the switch for the servo in the lamp. When it detects the motion within the specified distance (12 inches), the lamp will either open or close.
