A page of one-offs

The primary purpose of the robot50 site is to share full materials lists and build instructions for introductory¬†to intermediate level projects that people can build. However I have built a number of one-off projects, mostly interactive toys for maker fairs, that I thought I would post in summary form. They have their own page and are presented for inspiration and with some cautionary notes on things that didn’t work out the way¬†I planned.

Desk Lamp 01

Just finished a can of nuts and a tin of Altoids? Then you have a good start on the materials to build this nice little desk lamp. This project is an easy and quick one, once you have all the materials together.

desklamp01 finished2The lamp makes a very flexible reading and task light that doesn’t take up much desk space. It’s numbered 01 because I intend to introduce additional functionality to the design in the future. For now however, you can build the basic model with the materials list and full build instructions posted to the Desk Lamp 01 page.
