Flyte – A Levitating Light Bulb

New_radon flyte floating bulb ems designblogg

I usually consider myself to be fairly intelligent, or at least somewhere around average. But sometimes, I feel so completely lost. As in jaw dropped dumbfounded scratching my head in awe lost. This is one of those moments. I just can not figure out how this floating light bulb works! The floating part, yes, magnetism, that’s pretty easy. But the wireless electricity, that you can safely put your hand through, I just can’t wrap my head around. I know the technology has been around since Tesla, but that doesn’t make it any easier to understand… Oh well, it works and it looks super cool, what else do I really need to understand?

Flyte is a Kickstarter project, and during the short 4 hours it’s been live now they have already reached over 12% of the needed funding, so I have good hopes that this will come into production soon. Go check it out, and see if you can figure out how it works, or help get them on their way!

Ems Designblogg is all about Scandinavian style, soft minimalism and beautiful functionalism. The blog is Sweden's oldest interior design blog and has been up and running since 2005. I strive to fill it with a mix of inspirational and aspirational images from all over the world, while keeping true to my own voice and style, where transparency is key and creative criticism is highly valued. When I'm not blogging, I bake chocolate cakes for my kids, hang around Stockholm's cafés and drink way too many cappuccinos, do some occasional styling work, and try to fit in some inspiring travel adventures in between.
