There have been many significant breakthroughs in lighting, culminating in the current state of the art LED lighting technology. But not all avenues have been explored yet. Particularly in the area of long chain lactose based photonic emitters.

I felt it was time to explore this area with a combination of custom 3D printed housing components and specialist electrodes.

Join me, and share my journey as I build the first prototype of this amazing new technology.

The openscad script for the cheesedaptor is down below.

Making this is not recommended as it does involve exposed live cheese electrodes.

YouTube recommended this to me on April 1st, 2023. I guess they do have some sense of humor.

Probably a swiss would do better

Sure Edison's first attempt wasn't as bright though. Maybe try with a bigger cheese? All the best from Holland (where 12 kg cheeses are the standard). 🙂

Oh….. 🤣

Well, it did produced light, a warm (very warm) white, LOL, BigClive 10 000 X Conspiracy theorists NILL

every advance in technology comes with failure, every failure you learn more, i believe in these cheese light

Did you steal that base from another lamp or did you find where to buy them? I need some of those for a project I am working on. I found some that have a plastic piece and pigtails that are meant to use to change can lights to leds, but they are a bit expensive and overkill for something that will get epoxied to a 3d printed enclosure like yours.

It did emit light, but it was flickery. Obviously because you didn't include a smoothing capacitor in the circuit .

Clive, you clearly should be using Babybel Light…

Hello Clive, I think you make have made an ever so slight mistake; "Edison", surely as a UK citizen you mean Joseph Swan?

As a kid, I remember walking past the Joseph Swan display of the first incandescent light bulb, this was back in the 1960's/early 70s, it was actually outside on a wall of Swan House in Newcastle upon Tyne. In the mid 70's some idiot stole the lamp, but it was retrieved intact, and I believe it is now in the Newcastle upon Tyne Discovery Museum.

Some more useless and unrelated info; The first street to be lit by incandescent lightbulbs was Mosley Street, in Newcastle upon Tyne.

Fantastic educational video on lighting through…. 😎

K.

Good hotdog roaster hmmm.

Does not smell good

Maybe a revisit experiment using Babybel light ? As per inverse of 240 v vs experiment

you need unprocessed organic cheese
