    Looks cool, but I think it would get knocked over way too often.

    Great concept and design. I like the use of the green cord.

    You might want to fix the wall faceplate.

  9. Thanks for the nice comments! I have thought of using magnets at the base, and steel plates to do a wall mount. At the moment, it’s filled with some ball bearings at the base, so it’s about as stable as it can be, I think.

    Maybe you should mount it on a flat piece of something to keep it from ever tipping.

    Maybe you should get a different cord color. The lime green is a tad bit distracting.

    Actually. To be more convenient, why not just tape a fork to the wall right next to the electric socket? As it is right, now it’s still too safe for kids.

    wrapping the extension cord like that can cause it to heat up and maybe Catch Fire…

    I’d be “shocked” if Charles is going to update us on the face situation.

    Though this is a beautiful lamp, it is still a risky hack to do. You’re creating a electromagnet. I don’t know where you’re living, but it would be illegal in EU.

    Oh man this is an interesting idea. I wondered about these lack tables what they should be good for after their life – very interesting idea.

    Can someone tell what kind of bulb and cover is that? Or what is going on there?

    I gotta say, I like the outlet uncovered. I usually like seeing what people do with light witch and outlet covers, but this is fresh. Without kids, this works with the motif.

    @Anders, very good observation. This is an extremely dangerous hack. AFHH.
