Articles covering Lampster
Here is a list of links with articles about Lampster:
“The Lampster is the coolest lamp ever! A Robo Lamp made out of old tractor and bike headlights. Designed by a young architect and an engineer, the desk lamp has an imposing superhero stance and has two light sources: a clear one, controlled by touch, and an RGB one controlled by an app on your mobile device that lets you change the color or intensity from anywhere in the room. You can even sync it to your music and it will flash to the beat! Measuring 18 inches, it is tall enough to provide light for the entire office, and large enough to be used as a headphone stand. The Lampster is also customizable, you can choose any color or style you want, even add your logo to it. Finally, a lamp with a personality and attitude!”
“A campaign launched on Kickstarter claims that The Lampster is ‘the coolest lamp… ever’, and this is absolutely true!”
“Designed by a team out of San Francisco, you can add character to your desk or other areas of your household or office with this robot lamp. Dubbed “Lampster,” this desktop appliance is based on old tractor headlights and can also produce different colors thanks to its RGB LED bulb. Additionally, its posture displays loads of personality and is offered in custom paint colors via its designers.”
“The 'Lampster' is an intuitive robot lamp that can be controlled with a smartphone app. Traditionally, lamps are reserved for a single purpose. However, these designers have created a futuristic light fixture that does more than just illuminate a room.”
“These cute tiny robot lamps are made by "The Lampster" from recycled or reused lamps from old vehicles such as tractors, cars and motorbikes. The neck is made out of polished aluminium so it would never rust and the body is made out of 100% recycled high-density polyethylene. Even if they are made from old vehicle lamps, these lamps are modern as they can be controlled by touch or with your mobile device. We already love them :)”
“Then I saw the Lampster and it was love (I guess you could even say love at first light -- sorry.) There's just something about the superhero stance of the base topped by a vintage headlamp that gets you. A few of my other CNET colleagues had similar reactions. "First I scoffed, then I WANTED!!!"
“The Lampster is a lamp and so much more, you can sync it to the beat of your favorite music, you can control it using your phone or tablet, as well as having a touch feature to turn it on and off just by touching the lamp. I think this is awesome and will definitely look into getting one. The creators hail it as the most powerful desk lamp in the world and we all need that in our lives.“
IFA Berlin Expo 2017
The Lampster was present at IFA Berlin in September 2017, event where we showed our designs and ideas. We also met with new customers and some of our backers. The whole experience was a big success and we received huge attention from visitors and media who raised more awareness about our product.
