This lamp was inspired by the traditional Lava Lamp designed by Edward Craven Walker. By taking his design and making it slightly more rounded it ended up looking like a funky rocket.
Using the arduino Nano and the FastLed library it is possible to create this rainbow effect within the lamp. The round shape create a beam of light in the middle that gives the illusion the light is also emitted from the middle.
