EL Double Helix Lamp

Very cool EL Lamp created by new submitter, LucidMovement recently created this very cool way to make another use out of EL Wire. Check out this video for more information on it.


The inspiration behind the lamp is obviously a DNA double-helix, but what you may not know is to grow the crystals, LucidMovement built a helix-shaped growing substrate from nichrome and Electroluminescent Wire and submerged in a warm aluminum solution. As soon as crystallization occurred, it was mounted in an acrylic tube, and sealed with silicon. Pretty cool stuff!
