Development of the box light.Posted: March 4, 2015
An advancement on the previous tests with light. I found that using wire as a way to hold the hinge in place is not as effective as I hoped. This is because of the way the material is cut and the rigid wire that does not allow for much manoeuvrability. Instead I have trailed the use of elastic cord, this allows the hinge to move more smoothly through the box, but it still is not as smooth as I would like.
Instead I feel it is best to reconsider the design and to use the hinge as an extension of the side or top of the box. It means that it will move in a completely different way, but this might be more suitable as a development of the original idea.
