Browsing Brontos was the first in my series of animated lamps. It all started with a small clip-on lampshade that I noticed on the Lamps Plus website and a memory from Jurassic Park.
At first, I was calling it Grazing Brontos. But when I was doing a little research on the basic shape of a brontosaurus, I learned that creatures who eat with their heads up are called browsers, while those who eat with their heads down—like cows—are called grazers.
So the next time you hear someone say, “I’m just browsing”, feel free to correct them if they’re looking down—it’s a great way to make new friends. :-)
Ooops. Almost forgot the video … https://vimeo.com/130651163
