Ever wonder how a flashlight is built. Here’s how I built mine:
The first thing a flashlight needs is a lens
Let’s give it something to look at
but what does it see?
maybe we should make it transparent?
but no real lens is that clean. Maybe it has finger prints?
maybe not that bad?
perhaps it’s dirty?
What’s behind the lens? A reflector
what does that look like?
Isn’t there a light inside that reflector?
From another angle:
let’s protect the lens:
What color is this flashlight, anyway?
it’s dirty too:
and it has a logo:
Doesn’t it need something to attach to?
It’s red too:
and easy to grip:
But wait. Don’t we need a barrel?
with a grip:
and dirt of it’s own:
and a button
and to finish it up, a tail cap
yup, it’s dirty
Let’s give it some place to sit
that looks less like an operating table
and isn’t just a side on view
how about some sun light?
and something reflecting the sun back at the lens:
That looks OK. Let’s take its picture and see what we think
