原标题:Switching the Domino Lamp on is quite elaborate, but equally fun! 文末提供翻译

In a world where you can quite literally tell Alexa to switch your lights on, Glithero’s Domino Lamp sure seems impractical, but that’s by design. The idea is to explore an interaction that’s unconventional and fun both at the same time, while highlighting the simple technical process of switching on a light by completing an electric circuit.

“With so much technology in our lives it is easy to take for granted that even simple things such as turning on a light are made possible by the physical properties of materials,” said Glithero co-founder Tim Simpson. The Domino Lamp, designed for an exhibition at the Design Museum in London, titled ‘Reconsidering Canon’.

Switching on the lamp is physically elaborate, but theoretically simple. The Domino Lamp comes with multiple copper dominos stacked inside it. Take them out and arrange them from one end of the lamp to the other end, either in a circle or any shape of your choosing. Tip over the ‘rocker’ or the starting domino, and as the subsequent dominos topple over, they remain in contact, forming a circuit that goes all the way to the ‘receiver’ or the last domino. When this circuit is complete, the Edison bulb at the top of the Domino Lamp lights up instantaneously, to prove that the circuit is complete, and also to be a symbolic reward of having taken part in the activity of setting up (and toppling over) those dominos!

在这个你完全可以告诉Alexa把灯打开的世界里,Glithero的多米诺灯看起来确实不切实际,但这是设计出来的。.这个想法是探索一种既非传统又有趣的交互,同时强调通过完成电路来通灯的简单技术过程。“光的开启是由于材料的物理性质所造成的,”格莱瑟罗联合创始人提姆·辛普森说。.多米诺灯是为伦敦设计博物馆的展览而设计的,名为“重新思考佳能”。.Domino Lamp在里面堆放着多个铜多米诺骨牌.把它们从灯的一端安排到另一端,无论是圆形还是任意形状。.翻转“摇杆”或起始多米诺骨牌,当随后的多米诺骨牌翻倒时,它们保持触,形成一条一直通往“收器”或最后一个多米诺骨牌的电路。.当这个电路完成时,位于Domino灯顶部的爱迪生灯泡立即点亮,以证电路已经完成,并且也是参与建立(和翻倒)这些多米诺骨牌的活动的象征性奖励!设计师:Glithero
