Blood Lamp

Blood Lamp
Blood lamp is a concept designed by Mike Thomspon in the year 2007, with an initiative to make the people recognize that how we are wasting energy, and how precious it is. Luminol and blood are the major compounds to make the lamp glow. Luminol is a chemical compound that is used in forensic studies to detect the blood in crime. The principle behind the light glow is the iron-luminol reaction, where the iron content in the blood reacts with luminol and starts glowing. Single drop of human blood is enough to light this lamp. Potassium ferricyanide could also be used instead of blood to light up the lamp.
