Zelda Night Lamp

By Andrew Gregory. Posted

Recreating items found in your favourite shows and games is a popular inspiration for projects. We caught up with Michael Portera who's created a colourful night lamp and shared the design on Instructables.

"I built a three-rupee version of this night light for my daughter, and decided to build a more colourful one using the rupees from two of my favourite Legend of Zelda games, both on the N64 (Ocarina of Time and Majora’s Mask). The project uses programmable WS8218 LEDs for some really bright, great colours, along with an ATtiny85 for the brains and micro USB for power.

Michael is an infosec professional who enjoys maker culture, and dance parties with his toddler.
