Smoke and Mirrors and Light Bulbs

Why buy, arrange, and construct an array of 60+ fluorescent light bulbs when you can strap together three of them and let good ‘ole reflections do the rest?  Resting on the floor, the pyramidal shape contains three fluorescent bulbs that, aided by mirrors, project light onto your favorite piece of designer furniture.  As an aside, if you happen to close off the shape with a fourth mirror you apparently create free perpetual energy.

As a rare example of gadget gratification this lamp appears to be in production and can be found on Axolight’s website.

    nothing new. i saw this in a store window on the streets of copenhagen

    • On sterbrogade near Svanemllen, I presume? =) Same place I saw it, they've had it for qt least two years AFAICR.

      Also, @yanko: bad physics aside, shouldn't that 4th wall be a solar cell to drive the bulbs for that perpetual energy? =)

    Old tricks, but still working. The effect is great.
