I just picked up this awesome lamp, made by artist Sudhu Tewari. I got it at Langton Labs' Deceminate Craft Fair. It's 100% awesome and now graces my desk at Instructables HQ. Things I like about it:

  • The traces aren't too dense, and have really interesting shapes.
  • The PCB is translucent, giving the light a really nice hue. These are from some sort of mixer and are very hard to find.
  • You can see just a few components that were left on the inside of the lamp, silhouetted.

I'm currently looking into mounting a large u-shaped fluorescent bulb inside so that it will put out some serious light. It currently has a little 13W CFL in there.

UPDATE: I went ahead and put in a tall, 36W CFL. The lamp is a lot brighter and lights up evenly, now. I posted an instructable on how to do it.
Hy will there be more of stuff like this or is it a unique invention? Really nice lamp, would be great if there's gonna be a little series of that...:) If that's gonna happen, please mark me for the waiting line...:D Sorry for my english, i finished School years ago and don't need it that much here in germany...;) :)
Hallo!<br><br>Ich liebte dieses Projekt. Aber Sie k&ouml;nnen nicht finden Faserplatten, dass in diesem Projekt verwendet wurden! Ich kaufte die Platten aus Glasfaser leer. Drew komplexer Schaltungen. Alle fake! Nur &Auml;sthetik. Und die Korrosion! Ich benutzte die Technik der Toner.<br><br>Der vorstand der glasfaser macht das licht milchig!<br><br>Verwenden lampen R.G.B. mit fernbedienung.<br>Das Ergebnis war weit &uuml;berlegen!<br>Es ist die M&uuml;he wert.<br><br>Hugs!<br>
That's great. Can we see some photos of it?
It's a one-of-a-kind, at the moment, but the artist told me that he has more of these unique circuit boards to make more lamps. You can get in touch with him via <a rel="nofollow" href="https://www.instructables.com/member/sudhu_tewari/">his profile</a>. I'll warn you that mine wasn't cheap, though!<br/>
Sweet! I was trying to build something like this before, but this is just amazing
