Introduction

An electric light is a device that produces visible light from electric power. It is the most common form of artificial lighting and is essential to modern society, providing interior lighting for buildings and exterior light for evening and nighttime activities. In technical usage, a replaceable component that produces light from electricity is called a lamp. Lamps are commonly called light bulbs; for example, the incandescent light bulb. Lamps usually have a base made of ceramic, metal, glass, or plastic, which secures the lamp in the socket of a light fixture. The electrical connection to the socket may be made with a screw-thread base, two metal pins, two metal caps or a bayonet cap.

Challenges

Designing a printable case for a rechargeable power cell, a charging circuit, charging connector, LED lights and LED driver circuit which retains modularity and interchangeability with the rest of the components.

Approaches

Printable case modelled after "5" frames with LEDs on at least one face, a power switch, and charging connector.
