Zipper Light

If you would like to play a little and create something creative you can start from David Ngo idea. He used an illuminating object, some fabric, zippers and created the Zipper Ligh. This wall hanging capitalizes on the inherent capabilities of ordinary zippers to provide varying levels of brightness, a unique and gratifying user interaction, as well as an expression of revelation, discovery, and mystery. The light might not be so powerful, but the effect is worth a try.

    Yeh Whatever. not worth anything unless you can get the zipper to leave more that a small opening for light.

    hmm good idea but limited uses tho? but an awesome concept tho. what if there was sum pressurre or a force that would cause the zipper to open wider when its unzipped tho… allowing more light to come through?

  1. [...] 看样子,这个拉链灯的视觉效果真是不错,不过并存的一个问题是,能源问题. 当对光线的需求比较少的时候,如果设计从节约能源的立场出发,应该是能源消耗也变少,而不仅仅是通过表面的遮罩满足弱光源的需求. 话说回来,如果只是作为调节气氛的一个灯饰来使用,这是个不错的主意,不是么?via QQ书签 |  收客  |  del.icio.us |  Google |  百度搜藏 |  Yahoo | E-mail  |  订阅本站Feed Tags: Light, Zipper, 拉链, 灯饰, 能源 您或许想说点儿什么? [...]
