Small gimmick

A small fun project to set my mind to something else.
An old light bulb, an E1,- LED imitation wax candle with remote control and some paper. I heated the bulb with a torch to make a flat surface to it so it will standup more firmly. The bulb is cleaned out and the circuitry from a LED wax candle was added. By using 2 AA batteries i added some extra weight to the bottom so it will stand up more securely. I extended the multi color LED and placed it in the heart of the paper flower and moved the IR sensor to the rim of the bulb. On top of the LED i placed a plexiglas butterfly for extra bling. The LED can be turned on and controlled via the remote control.
Lastly i added the IR control into my domotica system for some extra attention for my wife.

But most of all clever done, saves you on flowers.... you simply give the led a different color :D
