    Hello Shapers,

    A few months ago I saw this incredible building titled the Seed Cathedral, presented by Thoms Hatherwick at a TED conference.

    As time passed by, ideas started to grow in my head about making something through shapeways that would utilize some of the special features created by the Seed Cathedral. Since the building's behavior towards light stands out the most, I thought to myself, why not do something related to light.
    I envision the project below as a votive-light, centerpiece on a dinner table at a restaurant. With Valentine's around the corner, it might be just the right print...

    P.S

    Does anyone know of a place online where I can get LEDs that would fit in the 1.5x1.5x1.5inch central cube? I'm looking for something that has a battery system already and that shines in all directions.
