Jansjö Lamp

Exhibited on Arduino Day | 2018

 
Jansjö hacked Ikea lamp, is a flexible lamp that lets you focus its bright light exactly where you need it. It’s slim, lightweight and easy to move around. We want to elevate and boost it's functionalities by making the user’s focus/relax session our core goal. We will give the chance to the user to have the right light at the right moment and we will base part of our design inspiration on time management techniques to break down work into intervals,  separated by short breaks.

App

Based on our personal student experience, we've decided to give to the user the chance to personalize his focus session time. Several times we've experienced that each student has a different way to study and to set his focus session, this is the reason why we've integrated a timer function inside the lamp, that the user can set from a remote mobile app.

Details

Focusing on our vision, we've used the light as a way to communicate with the user. Through the light, the user is going to change the context atmosphere around him/her, according to his/her mood. The user will change the light colour temperature by moving the flexible body lamp. Thanks to the gyroscope sensor inside, the LED will change from orange to white, from a mellow mood to a deep focus mood.
