The new Shadow Lamps are yet another fascinating innovation from Luxa. The laminated paper lampshades have been double-printed to have shadowy hidden images on the inside which only appear when the lamp is turned on, and this changes the lamp from a pleasantly decorated shade into something rather more interesting when lit.
The lamps can be mains operated using the supplied USB cable (requiring a mains USB socket or plug) or they can be connected to a computer, laptop or power bank battery. They also have a battery option to use 3 x 'AA' batteries via the battery compartment in the base.
There are three lighting mode options — continuous, pulsing glow or a gentle tea light flicker. These can be scrolled through by pressing the touch-sensitive switch on the front of the lamp.
The lamp looks like it's just a couple of mice having a chat but a very different situation becomes clear when you turn it on. This design has an interesting and very effective folding system to create a highlit staircase effect up which the mice are seen to scamper up while the cat looks on.
