DIY 3D LED POV

0

Is that enough acronyms in the title?  No, I think I can get a few more, don’t you?  I find the rotating LED signs interesting, though useless.  I can’t think of a reason to make one, and as such, I don’t really want to spend too much of my already valuable time making one.  I … Continued

Light Up Heart

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

The Birth of a UFO

Gone are the days when these things could be explained away as swamp gas reflecting off the planet Venus.  No, with the advent of cheap, highly maneuverable “drones” people can do all sorts of things.  At night, with a 1,000 watt LED bar attached to the bottom of it, and individually controlled and colored LEDs … Continued

New Moon

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

Starry LED Lamp

0

Instructables user darbinorvar put together this really cool LED lamp that lights up like stars.  You can watch her build the whole thing in her YouTube tutorial of the process below if you want.  It’s better then going through all the photos individually and remember, I’m lazy. I really like the random way she marked … Continued

LED Log Lamp

0

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
