Datelite Memory Lamp

Often our most cherished and nostalgic memories are the small ones.

Datlite memory lamp uses light to remind you of your special moments

 
 
 
 
 

Alzheimer's takes all memories, small and large.

Datlite subtly and calmly uses light to remind you of days past and can, with a simple turn, nudge you towards recollection.

 
 

Datelite is a normal lamp most of the time, but on special occasions it's true function comes to light

On pre-programmed days, light slowly spreads across the wall; The more light, the more important the memory.

 
 

If you notice the lamp brighter than usual, and cannot remember the occasion...

rotate the lamp counterclockwise, against the flow of time, to reveal the meaning of the day.

 
 

To input dates into the lamp, connect with bluetooth using the app.

Designate memories by rankings so that the lamp can light accordingly to the importance of the memory.

 
 

The design of datelite is based on the form of a clock

Turning against the flow of time, returning to its natural position using gravity, and lighting up like the sun lights a beautiful sunrise.

 
 
 

To validate the solution, i spent weeks building the software inside the Raspberry pi system.

I even built a previous version of the lamp and gave two to my sisters for christmas so they can use it with their children.
