Hat Lamp (Chindogu)

Introduction: Hat Lamp (Chindogu)

About: I'm a student in high school, and I love to create things when I can gather the money and attention. xD

How many of you have been working in your workshop, when you need a bit of extra spotlighting? But, all you have is your cheap clip-on desk lamp, and your favorite hat. Here's the solution: The Hat Lamp!

All you need is a hat of your choice, and a lamp that clips onto a desk.
Simply take the lamp, and clip it to the bill of your hat.
Then, plug the lamp into an outlet, and turn it on.
Voila! You now have a fashionable head lamp.

Possible Problems
1) The "leash" it creates, due to the need to be plugged in.
2) Injuries caused by the lamp slipping off
3) Injuries caused by the obstruction of vision due to the weight of the lamp
4) Ridicule due to looking dumb
5) Slight possibility of electrical shock if wiring becomes exposed

{Please do not actually use this! It's a chindogu, and is not really supposed to be used. You WILL be seriously hurt if you use this. }

    To stop the hat slipping down, simply superglue it to your head. In order to get a good grip, shave your head first. Alternatively, 5 or 6 panel pins or short screws around the edge of the hat should also work. If you start to feel dizzy, you've probably inserted them too deep. Simply pull them out a little until your head clears.

    Have you thought of making a portable version by strapping a petrol driven electricity generator to your back?
