I have made this Dynamic light Desk lamp that will keep the environment around you live and soothing and happening. You can choose the color of light with remote controller and change it according to your mood, and also the pattern of light effects. This lamp is made out of readily available parts and very easy to make but the show it performs is really awesome.

Step 1: Take Any 1.5 Liter Cold Drink Bottle and Cut It As Shown
Take any transparent cold drink bottle and cut it into two as shown
Step 2: Make a Small Hole at the Base of the Bottle
Make about 3mm hole at the bottom of the bottle that you will understand it later for what
Step 3: Take Any Plastic Container Probably Opaque
Take any plastic container probably opaque so that no light should escape out of it. Make a big hole on top of it as marked for our bottle to fix it right into it.
Step 4: Paint the Top and Bottom With Black Paint
I painted top and bottom parts with black paint also took one earthen lid for the lampshade and painted it black.
Step 5: Fixing the Bottle Into Base Container Part
Fix the bottle as shown in the figure and hot glue it from the bottom side.
Step 6: Hot Glue Aquarium Bubbling Stone in Bottle
Hot glue aquarium bubbling stone in bottle and make it water tight.
Step 7: Install Electronics Air Pump to Base
Install electronics and air pump to the base add switches one for the pump and one for the light controller. All of them will work on five volts supply so added USB supply break up the board to the base along with that.
Step 8: Apply RGB LED Strip to the Base of Bottle
Apply RGB LED strip to the base of the bottle as shown in the above picture and also taking care that the hot glue does not fill too much that it hinders light coming out of the strip. Connect the pipe from air pump to base of the lamp and fill in the water inside of it.
