D3: Wireless Color Wands
For this design I incorporated the Philips Hue wireless control and RGB tape light into a simple fixture stand that can sit against a wall or in a corner.
The wands are mounted to a ball, machined from brass, that sits in sockets printed in ABS plastic. At the tip of each wand is a printed ABS clear plastic diffuser that extends the color just beyond the tip of the metal housing. The housing is a U-shaped aluminum channel that the tape light was installed into.
The mechanical arrangement allows the wands to be tilted and twisted to create different arrays, that when mixed with color effect, create many different finished "looks" that can be easily changed and reconfigured either by moving the wands or programming the colors.
