Materials: FADO lamp, HTC Diamond package Arduino UNO and Arduino Ethernet Shield from Arduino.
Description: I have the pleasure to present you the FADOnet. This concept is based on the FADO Lamp, the packaging of the HTC diamond and is enriched with electronic system.
This Lamp is connected to the internet and transmit his state to the network. Additionally this lamp can be updated according interactions with other applications. For example you can change the lamp color when you received an email, when you receive a call and whatever notifications. This object is a lab object to study smart objects interactions and communication mashups (mixing communications applications). IKEA furniture is a good provider to build an home simulator and hack opportunities.
On an original idea of Olivier Le berre (Bell Labs researcher), the first version was designed by Sameh Ben Fredj (Bell Labs PHD Student) to be design in this form by Fabrice Poussiere (Bell Labs Researcher).
Jules Yap started IKEAHackers.net in 2006 as a personal blog to showcase the most impressive IKEA hacks from all over the world. Since then, she has learned a lot more about power tools and DIY. Her site has helped thousands modify IKEA furniture with step-by-step tutorials, craft projects and home styling.
