Wave controlled Table Lamp

Materials: GRONO Table Lamp

Description: This hack intends to transform a simple and cheap IKEA lamp into an awesome lamp!

This lamp was modified so it could be turned on or off by waving your hand in top of the lamp. The end effect is pretty cool. Inspired by this Make project.

A video demonstrating the lamp in action below:
