Larry Starry – Plush night light

Have you ever thought that everybody in another part of the world is seeing the same star, moon, sky, etc? Well, maybe not at the same time, but for sure it was the same light. Distance is a just number and stars keep shining no matter the distance, right?

So, Larry Starry is representing the Ursa Minor constellation and aims to remind people that no matter how far they are from someone they love, they are still connected.

A perfect night light for those who likes stars, constellations, and even especially for those days when we need a friendly reminder of how we are all connected.

My thoughts:

Personally, the journey of making things is the best part of creating. Although it took me more time to finish this project than planned, it was quite funny and insightful how we keep learning by using our creativity.

Trying to keep the soldered connections together was challenging. I have many! But I did it. If I had more time, I would like to create a larger pattern or try different LEDs and forms.
