Lampan 92 is on show now!

If you have recently visited the Industrial Design building in TUDelft, you may have noticed certain disturbances in the main entrance. And if you were there today you have certainly noticed a large almost spherical lamp suspended above your head, close to the security desk.

Does it look familiar? This is the Lampan92 lamp whose building I have discussed in a previous post. And now it has entered reality, which is both exciting and terrifying. This has been a low intensity projects, slowly advancing for over one year. Here is another shot with more context:

 

Apologies for the bad photograph: better ones will follow. What will also follow is that the lamp will get its own network connections, which in turn will allow us to control from anywhere on the Internet! The installation is powered by Python + Linux + Arduino + Google + cron and wget.

Involved people: the fundamental Aadjan, the helpful Aditya, the faraway Daniel, the very cute Sterre and of course Saint Rob Luxen.

And yes, we knew that it would look smaller once it was up there. At the same time, visual impact is a function of the surface, which is linearly proportional to the number of lamps, and we were not going to build one with 184 lamps – already this one was a nightmare of cabling
