Description

We have all seen fiber-optic lamps before, but never one so affordable! Using high quality fine optical fibers and an internally concealed LED light source, this light gives a beautiful shimmering effect! Makes a great demonstration of total internal reflection, not to mention that it looks cool in your classroom! This model has long fibers giving it a beautiful, "weeping willow" appearance. So affordable they could be party favors! Batteries included. Replacement battery item number BAT-55 (3 required). Stands approximately 23 cm tall (~9"). Colors may vary.

I got this and a couple of other items for my daughter and her roommates to goof around with, when they're working. It's fun to look at, and to touch. They love it!

Great price but this item is very flimsy. Beware of students handling it because it gets broken VERY easily.

Mini lights make good spotlights

These lights have sharp, pure beams that allow me to easily set up multiple light source shadow experiments in my lab. The students get to see themselves in rainbow silhouettes.

Small but cool

This light is very small but that is part of the lesson. Very good to demonstrate how light can travel through such a small fiber optic. Very cool in a dark room.

My boys love these fiber optic lamps! We received two red/pink lamps (pictured) and two cobalt blue lamps. My kids love to brush and blow on the fibers and watch the specks of light dance. I still can't get over what a great deal these are!
