Super Moon LED Lamp, A Japanese Symbol Of Hope

A Japanese design studio by the name of Nosigner has created a 3D Lunar Lamp that is illuminated by a LED bulb. The lamp was designed to commemorate the earthquake and tsunami tragedy and looks like a beautiful full moon.

The lamp was first exhibited at a Los Angeles, California design event. The lamp is meant to replicate what the Super Moon looks like (how the moon appeared during the tsunami).

Hear Japan’s Earthquake in Real Time Music

Micah Frank is the founder of the Tectonic project, and a sound programmer/engineer from Brooklyn who produces aural interpretations of seismic activity. His project aggregates earthquake data from the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) and turns it into sound sculptures in real time. The chilling soundscapes create an audio of disasters like the earthquake in Japan.

If you’re looking to interpret the sounds to get an idea of what was happening during the quake — where it took place, how far under the earth it was — there are some specific cues to listen for.
