The lamp will give direct light on the front (white part) and will reflect indirect light behind, creating an appearance of the moon in its different phases. The amount of direct light given depends on the position on the outside part because it can be open and closed. When closed, only a shape of a circle will be show.

What about materials?

Diffuser in white satin polyethylene Tortoise plastic

What about the type of light?

Halogen bulb incandescent light wattage75 W voltage 12 volt color rendering 100% higher effective color temperature (3000 k)

A device to generate a way never before experienced of

music to incorporate home entertainment through the use of leading technology and a user-abstract reality.  

See  your  music!  

Opens the container to activate and remove the ¨balls of music¨ Balls are placed on a flat surface and begin to move according to the desire of the person, creating music The balls received signals from motion, acceleration, pressure, that are send to the base to generate music, communicating at the same time with each other to mix the created sounds. A light is projected depending on the mixed sounds generated to be able to ¨see¨ your music.

To turn off the device, put the balls inside the shell and the ON/OFF button turns red.


How is possible? The production of the sounds is possible through the implementation of MEMs (microelectromechanical systems) that are able to detect movement, pressure, temperature changes, optical signs. Basically, they can detect your mood and play the sounds on a determinate frequency to produce pleasurable sensations. The vision of the music is possible through an advanced technology called DLP (Digital Light Processing.)
