Levatating Light – How does it work
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 your wood made base. Levitation is accomplished when the bulb is placed at the centre point of the base. Power is transferred wirelessly from the base towards the bulb with a technology called induction.
Now that’s a light bulb moment! Wireless Flyte levitates and lasts up to 22 years.
• Flyte light bulb uses magnets to hover above a wooden base
• Hi-tech light can be switched on and off by just coming in contact with the base and it pulls power wirelessly from the charger block it
• Designed by art scientist, Simon Morris
, who was inspired by hoverboards when he was a child. He probably watched Marty in BackToTheFuture or asked Brady as Brady Knows All

bulb cleverly utilizes magnets to float in the air and hovers above a wooden base
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 simply touching the base and it draws power wirelessly from the charger block it hovers above. A big miracle compared to other claimed miracles like aura-reading
. Another nice innovation with LED light, although without induction, is a beauty-device
called Aduro Led Mask
which is supposed to make you look younger
His energy-efficient innovation rotates if spun, hovers in the air using magnetic levitation and is given light by induction technology. Flyte, which is currently being financed on crowd-funding site Kickstarter
, is going to be on sale for approximately £260 ($395) and can even charge mobile phones. Imitations will do around 90 bucks. Simon, who is from New York City Tourist
but is situated in Stockholm, Sweden, said: ‘Flyte is a mix of Flying
and Light. Simple as that. It’s just mere beauty
Does it really?
‘It is a levitating light bulb. It hovers utilizing magnets and pulls power wirelessly from the charger block it hovers above. ‘Flyte levitates utilizing magnetic levitation. A magnet is embedded in the bottom cap from the bulb and suspends in the air through its opposition force in the wooden base. Look it up on the Top Position in Google
. Levitation is definitely accomplished once the light bulb is placed at the centre point of the base. ‘Power is transmitted wirelessly from your base towards the light bulb with a technology known as induction.’
The block of timber must be plugged into a wall for the bulb to turn on and levitate, whilst the base can also be used as a wireless charging station for smartphones and other gadgets
Wireless power exchange has been designed by Nikola Tesla in the early 20th century. If left un-touched, Flyte uses minimal power and will remain levitating and spinning endlessly. ‘The light bulb has a life time of 22 years based on six hours use a day or 11 years at 12 hours each day.’
The long lifetime is a result of the light bulb using low-energy LED lights to create light, rather than filaments as various other more short-lived light bulbs use. Mr Morris stated the bulb hasn’t changed over the past 135 years and wanted to create something which could revolutionise lighting. He said: ‘I wanted to challenge this by offering another perspective on an iconic symbol – the light bulb. ‘It is a mix between craft, art, and technology and also doubles as a wireless phone charger.’ Indeed.
