Ignite Light

Ignite light is an interactive light fixture that is sensitive to its environment.

The main feature of the fixture was inspired by candle flames and wind chime movements. The lights flicker when exposed to slight vibrations such as touch or wind. Holding certain shapes turn the lights on and off.

The underlying magic is done using the Arduino board and sensors made of aluminum foil and 8-ohm speakers embedded in the shapes. Small vibrations from touch and wind are captured by the speakers and control the flickering of the lights. The twelve lights are divided into four groups, each group with its own set of sensors.
