Introduction: Retro Tribute - CaSsette TaPes LamP With Joystick SwitcH
Recycling always recycling all I can.
This Lamp is made of Cassette tapes, and I adapted an old Joystick as a switch.
A tribute for old tapes.
Soon are coming more things I am thinking to make with Tapes.
Tribute to cassette tape, which kept us
company all trough the 80ies and became a
symbol of a generation.
Homenaje a las cintas que nos han acompañado
en los 80s y constituyen el
símbolo de una generación.
