!00 Watt Heads

Your head inside a lightbulb

!00 Watt Heads is a new range of light bulbs, each of which is totally unique. This is because the filaments inside the bulbs have been individually modelled as portraits, based on 3d scans of the customer's head.

To ensure a long life, the more durable wire used to make the filament is matched by a heavier gauge of glass that forms the light-bulb shape.

Choose a wattage and colour to match your personality and ego.... probably not that suitable for mass production unless you happen to be the Pope.

       The bulb is just bulb shaped, for strength and of course is made using clear glass - head shaped glass could contain a glowing skull - which is the "sister" idea.

       Well, I like it, though I am somewhat concerned with the retina burning qualities of such artwork.   

       On the other hand, I suppose you can look at it for a couple of seconds and then you can take away the ghostly imprint of your face for the next 30 minutes or so. The bulb could be turned off while you gaze at the retinal leftovers. That's value for many that. [+]

       I think it must be like a really surprised.....   




       Love the idea, btw. Can I have an obligatory Elvis model? Hmm. Scanning his head may be unsavoury though.
