LANp – A DIY Arduino network controllable RGB lamp made from scanner parts!

IMG_20140322_162510This is something we have really been meaning to write up. A few weeks ago we ripped out an RGB LED from an old Canon Scanner that was laying around and going to waste. Since then we’ve been playing around with the RGB LED element and decided to put it to good use.

We have come up with LANp – This is an Arduino and Ethernet Shield that controls an RGB LED colour real-time with a Javascript colour picker.

Take a look below for the YouTube video of this working at the bottom of the page!

This article will show you how to serve files from the SD Card file system and use Javascript to get sensor/variable values via AJAX.

This would be ideal for people looking to add a basic web system to their projects.
