DIY Book Light is Quite Illuminating

Steve Hoefer – who made this awesome one-player Rock, Paper, Scissors glove – took the term “book light” literally and made a reading lamp out of a used book. In keeping with his theme, Hoefer used a copy of Lauren Belfer’s novel City of Light.

Steve’s book light has a maximum output of 40W. Not only does it turn off when the cover is closed, its brightness is also dependent on how far the lid is opened. What a bright idea. Sorry about that.

Check out Steve’s website, Grathio Labs, to find out how you can make your own literal book light. I heard Steve’s next project is going to be a literal rainbow.
