Giant LED lamp


[guyfrom7up] must really really love LEDs. When he needed some lighting, which would obviously be LED powered, he chose to actually build a giant LED. Well, he didn’t actually build a giant functional LED, but rather an LED shaped diffuser for some high powered LEDs. He takes us through the process of first creating a wooden model, using that to create a mold, then forming the final diffuser.  The final product is very well done, and instantly identifiable by any geek.

[thanks Brian]

    That’s so funny. I like it. I’m glad he used high power LEDs though, or it just would have been stupid.

    That is so freaking cool. I build little led spot lamps with the plastic base from burned out cfl light bulbs, they do the job quite nicely.
