Lavendel in German TV.

A little report about me and my steampunk. The TV station DRF-1 has accompanied me about 5 hours at my work and created an 8 minute film. Unfortunately only in German…….

The Lavendel Coldlight Trilogy

Here some chemicals from the UV active range were used. Stirred, shaken and covered with some steampunk. UV light-emitting diodes in the upper and lower part of the brackets, stimulate this mixture to glow. This creation was also extensively discussed on instructables.

The Guard

Another high-voltage object from me. A DeLaRive tube filled with bromine gas. An electromagnetic coil rotates the plasma jet. A Teslatransformer again generates the 4800 Volt voltage. This tube was a gift from my wife Christine and my children Jasintha and Kira and therefore this object will never leave my home except at exhibitions of course. 🙂

The Remains Lamp

A lamp composed only of remains, parts or parts left over. It contains a dimmer that regulates only 110 Voltige illuminant in order not to destroy it.

IGRUN

The second Geissler tube, which I used in steampunk. Here, too, a Teslatrafo and a rotating brass cage were installed. The name IGRUN originated because of its functions. Translated into English and came out IGRUN.

I = Ignition / On Off

G = Geissler tube

R = Rotation

U = UV light

N = Neon light

These 5 functions can be switched on or off at the push of a button. The Uv light illuminates the uranium glass spiral. Uranium glass is UV active and shines in the dark when it is illuminated with ultraviolet rays.

Aetheria Circumducitur

The first Geissler tube in the steampunk area was installed. I designed and finished it in 2014. This lamp has already been shown in some newspapers and at exhibitions. Even in newspaper reports of exhibitions I was not at all 🙂

A Tesla transformer delivers the required 4500 volts for the Geissler tube and a rotating brass cage protects against unauthorized and quick hand movements. These lamps are very hot!

Aetheria

Aetheria. The first plasma light that was built by me. At the same time, she also serves as a name-bearer for the „Aetheria Series“, which I founded. All lamps and luminaires, which contain an illuminant filled with noble gases, are given the name „Aetheria“. The plasma ball with only one electrode is illuminated with about 800 volts.
