Step 1: Smashing Pumpthings.

I´ve told you before that I got no time...? Well i took my sledge hammer and break some electronic stuff...I hope something good will arise of all this mess,
What I´ve found? some electronic parts of an old mouse Cooper wire...lets have fun.

Step 2: USB ADAPTER UPGRADE.

sIMPLY i oPEN UP THE usb ADAPTER AND SOLDERING TWO WIRES TO THE OUTPUT TERMINALS. aT THE OTHER SIDE i JUST SOLDER THE LED AND ENTER IN A PLASTIC CAPSULE.AND FIX IT TO THE TOES OF THE bUG.

Step 3: LOOKING FOR MODELS.

i´M LOOKING FOR MODELS TO MAKE the coolest lamp ever...and I saw some beautifull Dragonfly trapped in my neighbor window, ...That´s what Im talking about.

Step 4: The Body.

The first thing that I did is to look some electronic parts that match with the shapes of a Dragon fly and solderer them  together.
First ,one Big bead of a necklace of a lady...( Don´t tell my wife), then a little bead from another necklace, then a resistor or transistor...I´m not sure...and so on, and so on, finally i put some cool cooper wire. first I stick them with a hot glue gun then with solderer iron.

Now the wings . i found some cool Copper Green thin wire, I draw the shape of the wing on a table, put some nails, and begin to make the shape of the wing, like an Spider web. This was the hardest part of the project.
Make 4 Wings of the same size, and when you finished just bend the tip to make the back Wings.

Step 5: The Legs.

Cut Three (3) pieces of copper wire of 1/8 of 14 mms, and make them a sharpened point ,then with the pliers bend to the middle and make the shape of the legs.
Here comes the fire, first I tried to solderer them together , ....But as solderer....I  Totally sucks...so i had to weld them together with my Old Stick welder. It was a hard one...

I like your way of thinking: break it, then try to make something out of it! Que luminaria mas linda!
Mr.Sanchez (author)  flyingpuppy2 years ago
Thnk U so much, In fact I had a lot of broken stuff in my garage, my wife dont like that way of thinking...but anyway she likes when something good came out of that mess.

A beautiful work of art. I admire your creativity, especially for the wings and the LED case. But soldering to an existing USB flash drive = brilliant. I'm going to try to replicate your work!

Loved the dragonfly! Especially the wings are beautiful! But to tell you the truth, the base would be much better without the CD spindle... The gears probably have enough weight to support the lamp. Somehow this plastic container underneath spoils the beauty of it.
Mr.Sanchez (author)  rosenred4 years ago
What do you think about this new Base?...better or Not...your comment open my eyes and I try to better things up.
Oh, much much better! The one with the gears gave a somewhat industrial feel to the lamp, but this is more elegant and gives a steampunkish look to the whole project!

Excellent work :D
