Light Up Heart

0

Remember this ?  Holy crap, that was 9 years ago?  Dang, time just seems to fly by.  Sadly, that heart is sitting on my shelf, not the desk of the person it was originally for, but in honor of Valentine’s Day, here’s the steps to make your own.

Glow in the Dark Skiing

0

Ok, not glow in the dark in the traditional sense, Greed LED strips attached to the skis and poles of a professional skier.  Some drone footage of him carving up the mountain side make for a pretty cool video.  Being the actual skier though, that looks super dangerous, even with the guiding lights along some … Continued

Anew Furniture

This KickStarter is fully funded and helps out a good cause.  Anew Nature helps to employ “at risk” men, making and selling furniture.  They started a Kickstarter to enable them to hire some of these men to produce the furniture that they are going to sell. What caught my attention was the use of the … Continued

New Moon

0

The above video shows a really neat interactive art installation made of welded steel, light bulbs, and LEDs.  The purpose is to allow people to see all the phases of the moon at once.  Turning the knob below the moon turns a mirror inside the light bulb moon which in turn changes the shadow effect … Continued

Gear Like Modular Lighting

0

I think they look like bicycle gears anyway.  Andrijan Mueller of Switzerland, who made this says they’re hexagons.  They look like that.  As you’ll see below, each arm of the hexagon/gear is one part of the lamp and can be mounted however he sees fit. This makes the whole thing modular, I like it. The … Continued

LED Log Lamp

Yes, a 3rd lamp post this month.  Sue me.  Instructable user Trask River Productions has put together a very comprehensive 34 step instructable on how to make this really good looking Log lamp shown above.  Honestly, it looks very well made, which makes sense considering the person/company.  I’m impressed with cutting out all the wood … Continued

90,000 Lumen LED Flashlight

2

There’s LED flashlights, and then there are LED Flashlights.  This is the latter.  This is a custom built 90,000 lumen flashlight that is bright enough to light up a mountain side.  Daniel Riley has constructed this beast by strapping together 10 (ten) 100W LEDs each with their own driver and heat sink.  He then used … Continued

Paintable LED Wall

0

2,800 LEDs, individually accessible, RGB LEDs to be exact.  This wall allows users to use special paint brushes to paint each individual LED pixel.  It’s alittle crazy though, especially looking at the back of it. The wall is made up of individual RGB tea lights that can be programmed different colors based on the feedback … Continued

Lighted Half-Dome

0

In order to raise awareness of themselves, and all the work they do, the American Safe Climbing Association, ASCA, climbed Yosemite’s Half-Dome at night and installed 39 solar-powered LED lanterns to trace their way up.  This was done to make the group known, and to let people know of their work, which mainly consists of … Continued

Computer Control Panel

0

Have you ever wanted a borderline useless master control panel for your computer?  You know, something that looks like the controls from Star Trek, or Star Wars.  Well, reddit user smashcuts has built his own.  Why, because he wanted to, that’s why. If you ever wanted to hang something very heavy that served almost no … Continued
