Tin Can Reading Lamp

I love reading, but I hate most reading lamps available for sale. Most fixtures are designed to light a room, not a book. I want to sit in the dark with a little puddle of light so only the page exists. That’s why I designed and built this little tin can lamp out of dinner left-overs and spare parts collected from trash on the street.

View instructions here. This design was featured in Green Lighting, published by McGraw-Hill in 2010 and also on ABC News.
