DIY Bubbly Lamp Awesome


Okay, check this out – if you’re a huge nerd like me, you’ll probably dig this project.  Popular Science posted this DIY bubbling hanging lamp project, and it’s pretty cool.

You see, what I usually do is find these articles and say to myself, “self, this projcet is really cool!  I should totally build that!”  The next thing you know, it’s two weeks later and I forgot about it because I got too busy.  That is why I post this stuff here – so somebody can make use of stuff I think is pretty awesome.


It’s a ridiculously simple design – a vapor-proof/explosion proof enclosure, some mineral oil (and color), cable, a pump to generate bubbles, and a lamp.  You can buy parts from McMaster Carr or Grainger and put this together yourself, right?  Of course you can!  That is, unless you forget about it.

    • You know, I have no idea! My only concern would be heat causing the lamp itself to fail. I bet that would look pretty cool, though.
