A Chandelier Fit For a Mad Scientist's Lair

No, that's not a sentinel hanging from this family's ceiling. It's one hundred petri dishes attached to 15,000 feet of fiber optics, perhaps pausing for a moment before reaching down to strike at those dining below?

Bacterioptica, as the chandelier is named, is designed to be a growing, changing household organism. By interchanging different sized petri dishes, adjusting the lighting intensity, and altering stem and arm lengths, the chandelier can be reconfigured infinitely many ways. If you look closely, you can see how it would make a kick-ass Alien. Or maybe I'm just projecting.

Fiber Optics, FTW. :D

Flav @ Photo Debate said...

That is just bonkers! The Petri dishes make the light ... yellowish, i don't really like that, after seeing the clear white optic cables. I reckon i could skip paying... 20.000$ or however much it costs and just make one with a few hundred...
