However, do not rush to throw away the old gadgets, the designer from Great Britain Matthew Perks has found a way of original disposal, for example, monitors from computers or TVs. Considering that when the display fails, the electronics most often breaks down, the engineer used the backlight system to create unusual flat lamps.

Enthusiast described the process in great detailturning the old monitor into a designer lamp that can bring light into the stairwells, basements, pantries. At the same time, the large diameter of the screen and bright light create the illusion of a window through which sunlight flows.
