In another life, Flyte would have been a mystical yogi who has unraveled the secrets of meditation. Staying disconnected from the rest of the world, this bulb floats above its base, probably to show off its detachment from worldly affairs.
Well, yes, there’s a perfectly reasonable technology at work here, but I do so much like the levitating yogi theory better, even if it is contextually crap. Although, I really do hope that someone gets a bulb to pull of the Indian rope trick. What really works its magic here is magnetic levitation that keeps the bulb floating, and induction that lights up the LEDs on the magic flying bulb.
Designed by Simon Morris, Flyte is available for pre-orders on Kickstarter.
