This is my lamp that I made not too long ago for some industrial design class. I made it out of glow in the dark paper stars and wire. It's a night light. The light bulb is only used to charge up the stars so that they can glow.  The bulb is not the real lamp (but sometimes I use it to light up my room). Grin





These are what the stars look like close up:


Here's the lamp at work in the dark:




And here's a cool picture of it:



That's all! Tell me what you guys thing. Cheesy

After recently attempting to make those little stars, I have a whole new respect for this light. Really creative.
