Mike from Nootropic Design created this Tabasco bottle lamp:

I love Tabasco and always though that their cute little miniature bottles could be the basis for a great specialty lamp. I was very happy to find that a 3mm LED fits perfectly in the bottle opening of the miniature bottles. By designing a custom circuit board I was able to make a lamp that looks like a bundle of dried peppers. Each bottle is individually controlled with a TLC5940 16-channel PWM driver. The software running on the ATmega328 is Arduino code that implements different lighting effects.

As usual, Mike includes the project files and code on his site.
