Using movements of the hand, the lamp is able to turn on, off and change its brightness using an ultra sonic sensor.
In this tutorial we have uploaded a series of 4 different kerf bending patterns that subject diverse moods of light from the conical structure however we look forward to what others generate from our original patterns and design.
The project was part of a Massey University, Industrial Design paper at the Wellington Fab Lab in New Zealand.
