Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) once only gave out a feeble light and were only used as indicators. They are now set to become the most important source of light in homes and many portable products such as torches. Small and powerful LEDs are used for reading lights and desk lights because of their small size and low current consumption.
WHY A READING LAMP?
LEDs are ideal for lamps that give a bright source of light over a small area. Many famous designers have created small lamps for use on a table or desk – and now is your opportunity to join their ranks and create a skeleton lamp that uses a center-of-gravity trick to stand upright.
