SPOKA Night Light & Android – RETURNS


Here’s a quick follow up to my previous post on this topic, to showcase the work of Frank, who inspired by my project (wow… I feel good πŸ™‚ ) went on and created a similar SPOKA light.

Short movie to download

He used the exact same IKEA hardware, but completely replaced the PCB with a custom one (that looks nicer and more modular). He even went through the creation of an “evaluation” board, which for me, a self taught and hacky person on the HW side, seems impressive…

On the software side he’s built on top of Β my code for both the AtTiny2313 and the Android platform but he doesn’t get the annoying flickering that I do… probably better hardware than the original one…

Download the AtTiny C code.

Thank you Frank for all this, I’m quite impressed with your hardware, and really proud that my project inspired you !
