I'd buy one from IKEA :D It's unique without being way out there, a lovely little bedside light.

I'm guessing the LED light is in the wood box right under the acrylic?

This thing is awesome. I gotta try this sort of thing. What kind and where did you get the plastic? And what's the technique you used to bend it?

that's just plain plexiglass, or what? hmm this seems like a very interesting effect... do all transparent plastic behave like thid, do you know?

this is acrylic; but yes most clear plastic will do that

it all depends on how transparency of the material
less transparent will stop the light sooner.
for example if you look at the edge of a sheet of glass is is green.

I think i got around 100 or so hours on a battery ....
maby more??

math says:
1000 mAh battery and the light uses about 7mA
1000/7=142.86 hours
