How to Get Help From Your Desktop Lamp

Nikodem Bartnik had a small problem. When soldering, he had to move his light around in order to properly see what he was working on. In order to avoid this constant interruption, he built a 3D-printed lamp capable of manuevering like a small robot arm under voice command.

An Arduino Uno controls the light’s movement directly via three servos, and a relay flips the switch on and off. Instead of adding voice recognition hardware to his robotic light, he cleverly linked it with an Android app over Bluetooth, using his phone to translate spoken words into serial commands.

This device can certainly come in handy in many different situations. All you need to build it is:

  • Arduino
  • Servo motors (3 of them)
  • Lamp
  • Relay
  • Bluetooth moodule
  • Cables

If you like it and you want build your own voice controlled Lamp, visit the linked Instructables page.
