DIY – Desk Lamp using your old scanner (or broken scanner)

Here’s a cool DIY on making a desk lamp using your old scanner.

This instructable shows you how to make a desk lamp out of scrounged scanner parts and a few extras from Home Depot.

I have set up a small solar array, controller and a storage battery. I wanted to make some low power lighting that I can use in my office that would not consume a lot of power.

I had a bunch of scanner parts lying around and decided to put them to good use.
