Night Light for Kids

It can be scary for a child to wake up in the middle of the night when it is dark and without a sense of time. Our night light gives the child comfort while they sleep. Over the course of the night the lamp moves from left to right.

The end of the cycle coincides with the time of sunrise. When the child goes to bed they activate the lamp by placing their hand over the cloud. Along with movement, the light fades according to sunset and sunrise.

It was build using Arduino, wood and papier-mâché. This was an afternoon exercise to learn the Arduino.
