Holiday Programme - Fibre Optic Desktop Light

Fibre Optic Desktop Light


This awesome project harnesses the power of Fibre Optic cable to create an amazing array of light effects.  Slightly different from the cable you'd have bringing internet to your house this variant has 'side glow' so not all the light from the multicolour LEDs in the base is bounced down to the end of each length.  Pressing the onboard button cycles through the 12 different effects as well as turning the unit on and off.  There is also a dial that controls overall brightness - because in a dark room this thing is quite bright!


On the day you will get to solder all the electronics, assemble and screw together all the various layers, cut your pieces of fibre optic as well as upload the code to the built in microprocessor. The unit is powered by standard USB and of course you get to take it home with you at the end of the day.


No previous experience is required and you’re welcome to bring a grown up if you want to.


Please note it is a one day workshop so students should only book for one session.
