Portable Desk Light

I designed and made a portable Desk light for my first Year project, it is the first model I have ever made.
The Bullet shaped form retracts out into a light weight portable desk lamp that is powered by lithium polymer batteries. The LED’s are lit through a sand blasted lens to give a diffused glow, avoiding troublesome hot spots. The hinging mechanism is made from two laminated carbon fibre arms that not only look great but provide a very critical element to the function of the desk light, using each arm as a conductor for positive and negative current eliminating the need for wires and slimming down the design. The carbon arms are coated in clear glaze to prevent short circuiting. there is a charging plug in the back of the light and the metal adjusting rod features a dimmer setting suitable for any lighting condition required. The Design is finished off in the famous Ford GT40 Gulf Racing scheme, other finishes of other race cars would be made available, for example: Martini Porsche 917K and the JPS Livery on the Type 72 Lotus F1 cars.

BizyLite Sytem.

This a a light system that operates on the train network. Lights are fitted onto every platform of every station which indicate how busy or full the carriages are on the train that is about to arrive. The trains are fitted with camera’s that can count how many people are in the carriage, this information is sent to the next station the train will be arriving at, and changes the platform lights colour appropriately. By having this system installed it should disperse the density of each carriage and increase comfort of public transport.
