Kaleidoscope LED Tower Lamp

  • August 1, 2017


"You have an idea. Light it up or forever remain in the dark." This project turned out so well I have applied for patents! The idea came to me as a "what if" and I worked on the design until it worked, and it turned out better than I could have expected. The idea was to build a tall accent lamp that cast light in a specific fashion, so as to illuminate the area around it like a kaleidoscope or stained glass. Against a flat surface the light patterns look like blue stained glass, without any glass. It lights up the entire greatroom in my house and bathes everything in a spray of multifaceted light patterns. It has USB power connectivity or can be plugged into a wall outlet with an adapter and can be remotely controlled. Need less to say this was a challenge, but now that I have the design mastered it's time to take the design further.
