Busby USB Lamp
Modern lighting is no longer the subject of electricity, but of electronics. Printed circuit boards, microchips, diodes and interfaces now give us greater control, conserving energy and providing longer lifespans. This transformation is a chance to establish new possibilities for the meeting point between light and electronics.
Busby is an electronic lamp that provides intelligent, universal power from three USB outlets, detecting charging requirements and managing them at their fastest rate, however many variable devices are plugged in. It provides up to 3 amps of power, enough to charge the latest generation of laptop computers, and can be freestanding, wall-mountable, or built-in to a surface.
