Fiber optic cables are pretty amazing little gadgets! A fiber optic cable works by light being transmitted through the core part of the cable. The light bounces back and forth from one side of the cable to the other side, as though mirrors were set on opposing sides. The light is able to move because it keeps being bounced back and forth between the sides without absorbing more light in the actual core. This principle is known as total internal reflection. Pretty fascinating, right? Now we have something even cooler to share with you--this high-tech lamp is not only made from fiber optic technology, but it is really going to get everyone’s attention with its amazing multi-colored display! Turn it on, and watch as it shows off a fabulous multi-colored light show. Plus, this light features a neat feature--it can switch into a mode that makes the light revolve in place. Not only will it get your friends talking about how awesome it looks, it will get them talking about how awesome you must be to have such an innovative lamp. A unique gift for your grandchild or co-worker. This is also a great item to have in the classroom to teach fiber optic technology in an interesting way!
