Firefighter truck painting

And another long overdue project of mine, which started with us painting my son’s room.

My son also wanted to have a firefighter truck painted on his wall. But since I had some electronics stuff on my mind which I wanted to try out anyway, I promised him much more than a painting.

The idea behind, is to have a somehow 3d painting, with lights, and more states of programming. I decided to go with this:

  • Idle mode: all lights are off, but if the light sensor senses no light, the headlights go on 20% of their power
  • Headlight mode: headlights go on 100%
  • Action mode: all lights animated somehow like a real firefighter truck (see video)

Cycling through all actions is done with a touch sensor on the lower left part, near the wheel.

Had to wait 25 years to be able to do this … But it’s my house now, and my swagg goes on the walls 😉

Just had to paint my son’s room, since it’s the old room of my daughter, and it had pink clouds in it, and for my son … just … no way … had to be done 😉
