Flyte Levitating Light Bulb

You might think you don’t need a levitating light bulb, and you might be right, but you sure as heck will want one after seeing Flyte do its thing.

Using magnetic levitation, wireless power transfer transmission, and we don’t rule out voodoo, this Swedish import magically dances above its base, with energy efficient LEDs providing light for an estimated 50,000 hours. Flyte’s base is made of sustainable sourced oak, ash and walnut, with electro-magnets automatically centering the bulb in position when you put it in place. Just tap the base to turn the light on and off, while the sweet levitation action keeps going. With the right third party accessories you can even use the base to power up your phone and other gadgets. Apparently wireless power transfer transmission has been a thing since the days of Nikola Tesla. Why we don’t all have floating toasters in our kitchen is beyond us. [Purchase]
