Build a retro touch lamp with Arduino

Not every Arduino (or electronics) project needs to look out of place in the home environment - with some thought a very nice piece can be created. One example of this is the touch lamp created by Instructables member bowlen199 whose LED touch lamp works well and looks great. By modifying an existing desk lamp into a work of minimalist design, there was still room for an Arduino-compatible circuit that used the hardware as a touch sensor to control a strip of LEDs in the housing.

It's a neat design and with the provided instructions you can create your own with a little study, and example of which is shown below:
