Introduction: A Floor Lamp Made With a Mic Stand
We had a very simple idea: put a lamp within a microphone!
The lamp should be small, so what is best than a LED!?
We used http://www.ikea.com/it/it/catalog/products/10237257/
and a very cheap microphone.
The result was much more nice than we expected!
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Empty the Microphone
The first step is to empty the microphone.
We advise you to use a very cheap dynamic microphone.
We used a used AKG one, bought for about 15 euros.
Usually the cap can be screw off.
Step 2: Disassemble the JANSJÖ
Next is to disassemble the JANSJÖ lamp, and cut its wires.
You have to keep the led holder intact, it will be useful.
Step 3: Join Mic and Lamp
Now you have to join the mic and the lamp.
We used some strong glue to fix the lamp holder to the mic.
Step 4: Soldering, Sweet Soldering
Now you have to solder back the wires you previously cut.
I suggest you to try out the lamp ;) during this step.
Step 5: Make the Wire Black
The electric wire of the JANSJÖ was white, and so it is the switch.
We put some black sheath on it and changed the switch with a black one.
The last step was to place mic on the stand.
