DIY LED Steps: Motion-Sensing Staircase Illuminates Itself


Watch your step – no, really. Each fade-in, fade-out, cross-tread LED light is a miniature marvel to behold in action, even inside a fairly conventional-looking home interior.

Edo Kriegsmann is a German designer with a taste for interactive furniture, furnishings, and fixtures, including but not limited to light-up tables and this illuminated series of steps.
