Pimed DUKTiG children mini-kitchen





DUKTiG DUKTiG Collage

For my daughter I pimped the IKEA DUKTIG children kitchen. Now the water-tap has a light and sound effect. Also the microwave and oven are equipped with a LEDs and sound effects.

A Raspberry Pi controls the kitchen. The whole electronic is mounted on bottom of the kitchen, e.g. power supply, loud speaker.

    I’d love to see a wiring diagram! We just got my daughter one of these and I would be a fun mod to do for her.

    Did something similar – blue LED in water tap and red+yellow LED’s in oven. We don’t have the top yet, but i have plans for that too. I didn’t install sound effects though, and both water and oven is just turned on by a simple on/off botton in the middle of the kitchen between sink and stove, but it works and she uses them and my daughter uses them A LOT! She rarely bothers to turn on the stove though, but the mods are in use several times a week :]

    Worst thing is drilling out all that plastic from the tab. I as certain I would break it sooner or later, but in the end it worked out. I used a smoked piece of acrylic to get a more diffuse blue light and to make it less sharp in case she decides to stare right at it. Also menas it’s not visible from the sides on the tap. Only the light is.
