13. Applications and implications¶
This week I proposed my final project masterpiece considering the necessary applications and implications. I will make a levitating-lamp with real-time clock.
- What will it do?
I will make a levitating lamp with real-time clock.
- What will be designed?
A case to hold and power the electromagnetic levitation, input devices and a digital clock;
A second levitating leviting case to hold a LED strip;
An internal and exernal packaging system.
- What parts and systems will be made?
Electronic production and design to program the LED strip, digital clock and capacitive touch inputs; two cases to holed them, and a packaging system.
- What materials and components will be used?
ABS for the two cases;
Transparent plexyglass to hold the levitation module and for the respective cases’ covers;
One satsha kit micro;
Two capacitive touch ttp223 sensors;
RGB LED strip;
TM1637 4 digit led clock;
12V levitation module and power supply;
5V-12V Voltage divider.
- What unit will be covered? And what process will be used?
It integrates a full range of fab units:
Computer aided design: sketches, vectors, technicals and 3D model
Computer Numerical Control: 3d printing to make the two cases (Additive fabrication processes) and laser cutting to make a part to hold the levitation, respective cases’ covers, and cardboard and polystyrene packaging system (Subtractive fabrication processes);
Electronics production: milling and soldering a stasha kit micro to connect components, input and output devices;
Microcontroller interfacing and programming: Arduino-satsha kit micro embedded program.
- Who’s done it beforehand and how will it be evaluated?
In commerce there are few examples of levitating lamps and no one has remote control and clock; it will be evaluated as a new smart and fashionable piece of design.
- How much will it cost?
The Hello lamp’s materials cost 111,23 EUR. BOM
Where will it come from?
Components and digital fabrication process will come from Fab Lab Napoli.
