I’ve wanted to create a lamp using Adafruit NeoPixels for over 2 years. When Techshop opened up last month at their newest location in St Louis (little over 2 hours away), I knew it was one of the first things I was going to make. This lamp has 88 NeoPixels and is running my own tweaked version of NeoPatterns by Bill Earl.

I know it takes a bit of work to see the “eighth note” but…it’s art! 🙂

There are two buttons to forward or reverse through the different patterns programmed into the lights. I loved creating this and am working on a whale lamp the next time I head to TechShop.

    Hey Brian,
    I was just in the St. Louis tech shop and saw your soul of he eighth note and was wondering if you had any for sale and if so how much for one? Thank you so much, it is an awesome design.

      Sorry you got caught in SPAM, Grant. MAN, I’m a great salesperson! #facepalm
      Yes, I would love to design and sell you a table lamp. I’m in the last stages of designing and building a lamp for M.A.D.E.’s lobby. I’ll be posting it here soon. You can email me at brian@semo.net anytime and talk about what you are looking for. Sadly, the cost of supplies are very high so it’s not inexpensive, but I’ve got two of these in my home and love them both.
