    The wife and I ahve been debating some of those solar lights. I may have to suggest this one to her. These look cool. Of course, I would worry about someone stealing them.

        That looks like fun to make too...I think I'll try to make one...if I have time, I mean.

        I have a store bought solar lamp, and it's really neat. But it came off of a bigger piece that cost $15, meant for a garden. The rest of it broke when the maintenance guys were rebuilding part of my apartment building, but I saved the shere with the solar light, and now it sits on the window sill (inside) and glows so nicely at night. But it looks so lonely. Some homemade friends would be great for it! Lol.

                    I'm thinking Christmas gifts for my sisters, sister-in-law, mom & stepmother. Six for each, two in each of 3 colors, X 5 sets, that's 30 of them. 36 if I make a set for myself.

                    Maybe I'll just do 4 each...

                      I was thinking one of each color

                      I'm not that ambitious. I have 10 adults to gift to

                        this would be interesting to build with Orangina bottles....but I don't know if the bottle would be the right size to accommodate a solar cell

                            Yeah, if I do 4 each, I'd do 4 different colors. Probably reddish, yellowish, greenish, blue-purpleish. Like a mini-rainbow.

                                It's an old thread, but I'll jump in.

                                1. Too many people regard designers as simply being those with the tool-using skills to implement client ideas and make suggestions about making things...

                                Looks nice, but as Kayekaye said, the shadows need some work. Shadows are never an even gray. In the real world, the shadows very close to where the balls meet the surface would be nearly black and fade...

                                I'll suggest soaking up everything you're told -- even when it's with a grain of salt. At this point your professors know more than you, and there'll be plenty of time a ways down the road (when you've...

                                I don't think today's typesetting is comparable to Gutenberg's work. It's a bit like comparing the Wright brothers to contemporary aviation engineers. Both Gutenberg and the Wright brothers made huge,...

                                If this is for you as a designer its is way too busy. Do some research and design a much more streamlined layout based on a grid.
