Arduino Controlled Artificial Candle Lights

A while ago I started working on a project to subtly light up our atrium room which gets a bit too gloomy during the autumn and winter time. I wanted something more natural looking than hard LED lights, preferably the live look of flickering candles. But creating a realistic artificial flame is not an easy task, so my idea was to place the lights in a way where you don’t see the “flame” directly, but merely the light it produces, dancing on the wall. Since the room is mostly made of glass walls, the obvious choice was to let the light be projected on the white beams holding the windows. I decided to place the lights on the bottom of the horizontal beam, projecting the light downwards on the vertical beams.”
