BAROU LAMPS - Thermoelectric Tech - the ELECTROPHORUS series
« on: January 15, 2021, 02:31:53 am »
Hello to all,

I present my New lamp Invention, Electrophorus.
Its a fully functional, novel design, thermoelectrically operated lamp, with an attitude.


Three are currently made so far, and if a kickstarter campaign proves successful, more are to come.

ELECTROPHORUS - E001
ELECTROPHORUS - E002
ELECTROPHORUS - E003

See it in operation

Welcome aboard Barou.

I like 'em!

My only suggestion is maybe different bulbs, the LED filament type would look soooo much cooler and a little more Steampunk with that antique look imho.  8)

Thank you for your comment. I really appreciate it.

**

I really had that in mind, but i went for efficiency and simplicity, at least in my current embodiment.
(Filament leds have arginally more efficacy than 80 lumens/ watt and required like 70 volts to run)

Can be done. With the appropriate modifications, but it will be primary for display rather of display + practical value.
Depends what people would want.

Oh man, i could not make the links with the embedded image work.
something i am missing

cheers,
Barou

That's okay; everyone has trouble with it at first. The trick is that you don't upload the image to BG's servers, you merely create a link to an image which exists somewhere else. View the image in your browser, right-click to copy the image URL/location, then paste the URL between the [img][/img] tags, and it looks like this:

Thank you again SeVeNeVeS!

I was inserting the link created by google photos inside the img code rather than actually copying the link of every image's actual url.
thanks.

you just motivate me enough to make another lamp "hat" or the reflector as i call them with led filaments this time.
It will take a while though :)

Another handy hint........

To embed a video, copy the youtube URL then knock out the S.

So https:// becomes http://

Works most of the time, preview to make sure tho.

Please do post piccies and video of one with filament bulbs.

Thanks for the new hint admin,
I will post video and photo with filament bulbs, but it will take a while. So much are going on this time.

Thank you again for your insights

Just an idea, you could do Steampunk, Dieselpunk, Cyberpunk and utility for different markets.

Steampunk...... all brass copper and maybe a wooden base or wall mount

Dieselpunk....... black, industrial feel

Cyberpunk........ would need quite a few LED lights

Utility............... any colour or design, basic but appealling

There is an urge from primeval times that still exists in every man, flame and fancy lights.

Could decorate every BBQ and garden table sometime.

Very nice!! :o Somehow, I missed this post... Very interesting! I wonder if you have an estimate for the duration of electric illumination for a given amount of fuel... Peltier efficiency is very low usually, but LEDs use so little current, that maybe the whole thing balances out to something practically useful
