3-d Printed Cityscape Light Bulb Shade ... Cool!
Adam Rifkin stashed this in 3D Printers
Just like the penguins in the Antarctic huddle to survive the extreme cold during the winter time also people have taken on huddling as a strategy for survival. The mega city, despite its many problems, seems to be our destined habitat now that resources are becoming scarce. It also hold the key to a sustainable future with its concentration of information, technology and talent.
Huddle is a 3-d printed bulbshade showing the modern cityscape: high rise buildings huddling close together. Directly mounted on the LED bulb that is included, the need for a fixture is ruled out. Soon 3-d printing will be a standard feature of modern city infrastructure with a 3-d print shop on every street corner. A whole new way of making things without the usual transport of materials and products. Only the digital data defining these products travelling the globe. Your products printed on demand and right where you want them.
5 Watt quality LED bulb (20 years), cable and lamp holder included.
Cost: 185 pounds.
There's also a floor lamp version of Huddle.
