(image credit: Minsung Bae) The Host Lamp is an excellent idea but it will be a shame if it’s using incandescent light bulb

we can’t live without lights, so we have lamps in our rooms. for those who felt the need to use a humidifier, why not combine the lighting and the humidifier into one? this was the concept behind this beautiful appliance, dubbed the Host Lamp, designed by Minsung Bae. the theory goes that heat generated by the light bulb could be harvested to power the humidifier via Thermo-Electric Modules or TGM. the TGM generates a voltage when there’s a temperature difference on each of its sides.

an aluminum heat sink is used to captured the heat generated by the light bulb, while TGM is being placed between this aluminum heat sink and the humidifier’s water container. the electrical energy produces through the TGM is then used to charged the battery that powers the humidifier. simple concept but what’s important is: will it really work? aesthetically speaking, the Host Lamp looks beautiful, except for the chimney-like humidifier vent, which we are not quite fond of. we are also concern about the brightness factor of the lamp and what kind of light bulb will be used. surely, we can’t be using incandescent light bulb, right?

  1. Thanks for every one of your work on this web page. Betty enjoys making
    time for internet research and it is simple to grasp why. Most people know all
    relating to the dynamic medium you make practical suggestions on the web site
    and as well as encourage contribution from some others on that concept while my
    child is without a doubt becoming educated a lot of things. Have fun with the
    rest of the year. Your doing a pretty cool job.

  2. I would like to show my appreciation to you just for rescuing me from
    this particular matter. Right after searching throughout the online world and
    seeing things which were not pleasant, I assumed my life was over. Living
    without the presence of solutions to the issues you’ve solved by means of this
    guide is a critical case, as well as ones which might have in a wrong way
    damaged my career if I hadn’t come across the blog. The skills and kindness in
    taking care of a lot of things was important. I am not sure what I would’ve
    done if I hadn’t discovered such stuff like this. I can at this point relish my
    future. Thanks very much for your professional and result oriented guide. I
    won’t think twice to recommend the website to any individual who needs
    guidelines on this subject matter.
