An apprentice with the Light side

With the cart 1:5 scale model, the [R]ed[U]x Lab team has been able to investigate various design features including structure and ergonomics.  At the same time, this provides a quick mockup opportunity for designing the lighting conditions within the cart.  Based upon the basic design premise that the cart's illumination becomes more evident as the night progresses via the removal of the serving elements, the team has investigated how the lighting would look and be wired through the cart.  Unlike last year's cart which had a subdued red tone, this year the team will be investing in a cooler white light that will coordinate well with the LED's in the serving units. Here are some images of Ariel and Frank testing out the lighting configurations (don't worry, the scale model is deceptive as the tape lighting makes the cart look incredibly bright, if not radioactive!).
