Strangely realistic Arduino controlled "cloud"
This pretty simple project has some pretty cool effects! They use an Arduino, some RGB LEDs and polyfill stuffing to make a hanging cloud lamp. The structure is held together with a transparent box that houses the Arduino and LEDS. The polyfill is hot-glued to the outside. It looks like the polyfill channels and diffuses the light in some interesting ways. You can even change the colors with a IR remote.
I bet you could make an awesome wig with the same method! Or maybe you can add Wifi and do some sort of weather indicator.
Check out the video!
There is also an updated version with some new features.
