In our lives, all of us has had a phase where they’ve kept their shoulder to the wheel, be it while studying, meeting deadlines, or finishing an important project; and we’ve struggled with the working conditions as well during those times, especially light. But not anymore! With this easy-to-make DIY Dabble controlled LED lamp, you don’t have to worry about unchangeable lighting conditions anymore. All you need is some power LEDs, some chart paper, some DIYing, and evive of course! With Dabble, our project-making mobile application, you can easily control the brightness of the lamp and set it to as much you want and give your best! We’re proud of you!
If you don’t already have Dabble, download it from here!

Step 1: Making
You will need thick cardboard to make the lamp.
Make sure that the box is of the height of evive.
Next is to make the column. You will be making the column into two parts.
The first will be a long one and the other will be one on which the lampshade will be fitted.
All of these will be made using the help of cardboard.
Next is making a small part of the column which will be attached horizontally.
On this part of the column, we will be attaching the lamp shade.
Fold the lamp and glue the ends to make the shade.
Step 2: Connection
Make the connections as shown below:
Power LEDs need12V which can be provided by connecting evive to an external connection. And this external power can be obtained by connecting the LEDs to the Motor Channel.
Step 3: Logic
We will be controlling the Lamp using your Smartphone, thus we need a superhero that does this. Install DABBLE. With this app, you can even control the brightness of the LED which we will be doing.
Choose LED Brightness Control option from the menu.
Lastly, select the pin on which you have connected the LEDs to. In our case, you have to select pin 44.
The Power LEDs are the brighter ones. Thus we have used two power LEDs which can easily replace your normal bulb.
Step 4: Code
Upload the following code:
Step 5: Connection
With this, your DIY Dabble controlled LED lamp is ready! Grind and shine, just like the LED of your lamp!
Connect the LEDs as shown in the figure.
