We all know about wireless network, wireless charging, wireless file transfering but have you heard about a wireless light Bulb. Its true a revolutionary invention of wireless electricity transfer to lights has taken place, lets know what is….
A scientist has created a revolutionary wireless light bulb that levitates and has a staggering lifetime of 22 years.
The ‘Flyte’ levitating light bulb cleverly uses magnets to float in the air and hovers above a wooden base.
The hi-tech light bulb can be switched on and off by just touching the base and it draws power wirelessly from the charger block it hovers above.
It was invented by art scientist, Simon Morris, 37, who was inspired by the concept of a hoverboard as a child.
Flyte, which is currently being funded on crowd-funding site Kickstarter, will be on sale for around £260 ($395) and can even charge phones.
‘Flyte levitates using magnetic levitation. A magnet is embedded in the bottom cap of the bulb and suspends in the air through its opposing force from the wooden base.
‘Levitation is achieved when the bulb is placed at the centre point of the base.
‘Power is transferred wirelessly from the base to the bulb with a technology called induction.’
The block of wood needs to be plugged into a wall for the light bulb to turn on and levitate, while the base can also be used as a wireless charging station for smartphones and other devices.
The long lifetime is due to the bulb using low-energy LED lights to create light, rather than filaments as some other more short-lived light bulbs use.
‘It is a mix between craft, art, and technology and also doubles as a wireless phone charger.
