COMBINING CNC’D PLYWOOD, LASER CUT ARYLIC, 3D PRINTED COMPONENTS, AND A PROGRAMMABLE IOT PCB WE ARE ABOUT TO MAKE AN ‘INTERNET OF THINGS CONNECTED LED’
This project was first delivered as part of a collaboration between STEAMhouse, the BBC and MakerLabs. Below is the step by step guide to help you make your very own connected LED…
But what does connected actually mean???
Connected devices are objects that have some kind of ‘link’ to the internet, and can be controlled or ‘triggered’ through apps / websites you give permissions to. This project was originally designed to be delivered in a few hours… so we have kept the ‘technical’ to a minimum, but also provided a platform that you can go away and experiment with.
EVERY STEP IN ONE VIDEO
The build is made up of two parts; the hardware (physical) and the programming (digital). This video covers both stages.
We have gathered together all of the links and resources you will need to get setup (the apps and libraries are all completely free to download and use. When linking apps to your personal accounts, please make sure to read the terms and conditions and make sure you are happy with them first!)
