Picture of How to Make a TRON Style Lamp: The MADYLIGHT

Version francaise : cliquer ici !

Thanks to my job as a magician, I have been able to acquire skills to materialize in our reality, effects that at first might seem completely impossible to achieve (except of course in special effects movies) like transforming a human being in a snow storm... Always surpassing limits is by far my favorite challenge.

Unfortunately I will neither be telling you on this tutorial how to cut your wife into four pieces (she will thank me) nor how to make your car levitate in the air (though it might be very useful when changing the tires)... Professional secrecy.

My main source of inspiration resides in movies, video games and science fiction. Well, what is the common point between TRON, Zelda, Final Fantasy, etc???

Answer: The luminescent shapes which represent electronic circuits or magic spells. I have always been marveled by these visual effects and I do think I am not the only one.

I have recreated this effect on a cube in order to explain the main mechanism.The goal here is to achieve reproducing this effect in any other object of everyday's life; like a coffee table, a Plexiglas chair, PC modding etc. I have a list of objects I am already working on .

This is my first online contribution to the world of design and I hope the beginning of many others.

(By the way I seize this opportunity to say that I am also looking for firms which could be interested in producing and launching my creations like the following lamp. Thank you very much.)

CabbitCastle made it!1 year ago

Made it as a birthday present for my sister.

Took me 8 hours per side to cut out the flowers, but it was worth every second.

I put in an RGB LED lamp, so it would change cholors every couple of seconds.

Seriously, a splendid idea and tutorial.

I really hope you'll be able to commercialize your products as they're awesome!

Looks like someone was inspired by this and made a retro-game cube (http://bit.ly/TFZ3uU).... Wonder if he's going to do other styles or even the shelfs, too.

Incredible! Can anyone say "Full Metal Alchemist?"
exactly what i was thinking!!
this would be an awesome thing to set up with a magnet switch. *clap and slap wall* runes everywhere!
The clapper and a 2 second time delay would work pretty good.
and, the lights turned on flying outward from ware you hit.
I just might try that in my basement...*runs 20 miles home and gets to work*
full metal alchemist.......was it supposed to do anything? (just kidding) yes that'd be a sweet design.
