For my lamp I started out recycling old code using a flex sensor but that didn’t work. In the end I created a simple circuit with 4 LEDs and a Potentiometer. I house it all in a glass pumpkin that was lined with textured paper.
I wanted the lamp to be more interactive then it turned out to be, plus I didn’t have a 9v battery pack to use to find all the wires and Arduino. I will need to get more stuff to make my project clear and easier to show.
