I saw an article in a recent Trade magazine that outlined the new lighting scheme in our National Museum in Wellington "Te Papa".
And it mentioned that most of the lighting used for the exhibit lighting used, a central light source (usually 70-150W Metal Halide) and a whole heap of fibre-optic threads with a coloured head on them to supply different shades of light to the exhibits.
The biggest thing here, was the fact that they wanted no heat to be generated in the exhibit cases, so what better way than this?.
Have any of you guys ever heard of this type of lighting system being used before?.
I reckon, if you wanted to "tart" your Lounge up, this could be the way to do it!.
Considering you could have a motor driven colour-wheel, over the bulb and clear heads poking thru the cieling!.
The ultimate Retro trip.
They reckon that you can drive up to 40-50 heads off a single bulb.
What do you guys think?.
