Lighting Bookcase / Lighting for reading

Lighting Bookcase
Lighting Bookcase

People often read a book in front of a bookcase, just after pulling out it.
Lighting Bookcase is based on this idea that the behavior of pulling out the book functions as a switch. So, when the book is pulled out from the Lighting Bookcase, the light is on for reading it, and vice versa.

As a book is pulled out, there is an empty space in which the book was. A light sensor is placed inside of the bookcase, the sensor can recognize slight light from the empty space. The prototype is applied to the light-reaction sensor.
