I was really hoping this was going to be one of the super minimalist LED lamps with just a resistor and rectifier. In a way it is, but a bit more sophisticated.

Also featuring some of the completely useless 3D objects I've made as I've got into the script based 3D modelling. The crystals are promising. I may scale it up and then add some mounting holes for LEDs inside.

This also keeps the channel independent of YouTube's advertising algorithms allowing it to be a bit more dangerous and naughty.

Shirley that's a candle bulb. It's supposed to flicker, innit?

You are very funny when the tips of your cutters slide over the slippery metal. Somehow, I don't see any big scars from when you are not lucky.

Why do you want to store your chocolates in iRaq? Better to store them where they won't die from the heat when they should be dying from HCL acid "poisoning".

Masticating?

Keep doing that, and you'll go blind. 😁

I wonder what sort of circuitry is used in the 120 volt versions of a candelabra LED filament lamp? Speaking of the construction being similar to a convention light bulb, does anyone know if they bothered to evacuate the glass envelope as well?

It's not ppointless if it's fun! 😀

+1 Open SCAD, you should do a video on this @bigclivedotcom

re-entrant objects you say? Can you 3D print a Klein bottle?

Costa should be ordering those from you by the millions!
