IKEA STRALA lamp with Picaxe chip!


Senior Member
Hello all.

This is a small project using the IKEA STRALA lamp. It's a small battery LED light shaped like an angel. You can either turn it on or off. It does have a lot of space to fit a small circuit inside, so I got one and started working on an small X-mas project.

The project uses a Picaxe 08M and a small piezzo speaker to play a few Christmas tunes. I also used a USB-2-ttl cable to provide power to the circuit and control the actions from a small win32 app. The STRALA lamp can now play one or all of the available 4 x-mas tunes, flash the led, turn on or off the LED.

You can check the project here.
This is how the lamp looks like:
