KeyDuino helps give your living room a futuristic touch

Now you can build your own NFC-enabled infinity mirror coffee table. 

Have you always wanted to add some Tony Stark-like effects to your living room? Well, thanks to Pierre Charlier, you’re in luck. That’s because the French engineer, who recently launched a Kickstarter campaign for the KeyDuino, has shared a tutorial for an impressive infinity mirror table.


To bring his idea to life, Charlier upgraded a $159 IKEA RAMVIK coffee table with 152 RGB LEDs and a 19” x 27” mirror for that sweet illusion. He placed the mirror underneath the furniture’s glass top, outlined the inner edge with a strip of LEDs and layered the original glass surface with a reflective car tint. The unit itself is powered by a 5V 6A supply.


As if that weren’t enough, Charlier decided to add to the magic. Hidden under the table, the Maker equipped the IKEA piece with his NFC-enabled, Arduino-like board which enabled him to control its hue with just a tap of a smartphone. One scroll of the color wheel opens up unlimited possibilities.

Intrigued? See it in action below! Meanwhile, you can check out KeyDuino on Kickstarter, where it has successfully garnered over $14,000 from more than 230 backers.
