Arduino Blog – Add IoT capabilities to an IKEA night light with MKR1000

Hacking an @IKEA Spöka night light with the Arduino MKR1000:

  • We’re using Noodl as a foundational tool when we hack our night light.
  • Traditionally data and physical interactions have been difficult to work with, often requiring the availability of early hardware or by constructing mockup data.
  • The team decided to take an existing product and retrofit it with IoT capabilities.

@arduino: “Hacking an @IKEA Spöka night light with the Arduino MKR1000:”


During a recent workshop, Swedish innovation studio Topp set out to create a platform for rapid prototyping with design and data. The team decided to take an existing product and retrofit it with IoT capabilities. For this, they selected an IKEA Spöka night light and hacked it with an Arduino MKR1000. The connected lamp is capable of reacting to its surrounding environment through sound, motion, and light, while an accompanying app is used to monitor and control intensity.
