While I appreciate the skill displayed in the other booklamps produced, I feel they lack a certain kludge factor. I think I've achieved that here. Plus, no books were harmed in the making of this lamp!
Czech glass artist Michal Zahradnik> designed this all-glass steam engine, which he claims is fully operational and can run at 500rpm. Some of his other creations include a model plane and Harley-style motorcycle. All I know is the sound this thing makes is going to haunt my dreams.
