LumiLife is a solar powered lantern that during the day sleeps and charges and comes alive with breath and light at night. It uses a nocturnal circuit and a motor control circuit to light up and bellow the lamp. It was designed and created by Susan Ngo and Zeven Rodriguez.
This is the diagram of how it all flows together.
The nocturnal circuit is made of a 74AC14
This is the schematic for the nocturnal circuit from the beam wiki site.
The motor controller circuit is composed of a 74AC14 and a 74AC240. The motor circuit was made from this tutorial on the beam wiki site. The parts include
.22 uF MonolithicÂ Capacitors (Four).
10 uF Monolithic, Electrolytic or TantalumÂ Capacitors (Two).
2 MegÂ Resistors red-black-green (Four).
4.2 uF Monolithic or TantalumÂ Capacitors (One for the Reversing Circuit).
3 MegÂ Resistors orange-black-green (One for the Reversing Circuit).
â Open circuit:Â 4x 4.5v @ ~20 mA
â 3x 1.2v @ 600mAh
â¢Motors & LEDs = 3.6 @ 300mAh
â 2x Motors
â 6x LEDs
