The tutorial below will show you how to make your own “Mawari-Doro” or Japanese turning lamp customized to look like a goblin from the arcade classic, Pac-Man. The shell spins due to convection. Heat from the bulb causes the air around it to rise. The rising air passes through the slits in the top of the cylinder and the piece spins. There is no electric motor. It runs entirely on a single incandescent light bulb.

Here I will show you how to make a better version of what’s shown in the video. The eyes and color will be projected using a heat-resistant photographer’s gel that can be easily removed and reapplied if the bulb burns out. The pupils will be movable so you can have the eyes look in any direction. You have the choice of printing out a cylinder that spins clockwise or counterclockwise. You’ll also be able to make any of the ghosts: Blinky, Pinky, Inky, Clyde and “don’t eat me!” blue.
