Fiber Optic Fabric Light Display

Fiber Optic Fabric Light Display Not only have you got fiber optics weaved together to form a fabric mesh, these lights also respond to feeds coming in from Twitter and other sources. The fiber optics are connected to RGB LED lights that are controlled by an Arduino microcontroller that changes the colors and patterns.

Create Your Own Wall Art Lamp

Heart Wall Lamp DIY

Feel like creating your own light up art piece? Then check out Jeromina’s step by step DIY guide to see how she made this heart wall lamp.
