December 15, 2021 | Applied Technology Lab - We've got a small and growing collection of customized panels for our lamp prototyping platform. They are easy to design in SketchUp and take little time to print. 

In the picture above you can see a PIR motion detector and a rocker switch. We also have some panels fitting ultrasonic range finders and photoresistors with a little brim built in to try to block out the lamp's own light (see below). 

 The lamp is far from presentable but that is not the point. The point is to have a platform that can test a variety of options that can be incorporated into future lamps that will focus on both form and function.

Next will be sorting out the electronics including basic things like wiring it to provide both AC and DC power to the project in a safe manner and with only one cord going to and from the lamp.  

We added a zip folder with both the triangular and diamond shaped panels - these are just initial designs - the final design will be published on Thingiverse.
