Simon Morris Creates A Light That Levitates

It all started when Simon Morris was 16, he dreamt of having a hover board, so much so that he was always trying to levitate his own prototypes with magnets. Fifteen years later, he has made all sorts of objects levitate, from nike shoes to speakers, and now he has focused on FLYTE, a light that levitates.

The designer’s description

FLYTE is a levitating light, which hovers by magnetic levitation and is powered through the air. With FLYTE, we’ve set the lightbulb free.

The world moves so fast, so take a break from gravity and experience something surreal that appears suspended in time. FLYTE requires no batteries and powers light through the air via induction.

Wireless power transfer transmission has been around since the days of Nikola Tesla. With FLYTE we’ve packed some of Tesla’s tech and combined it with magnetic levitation, opening up a magical world of¬†possibilities. Our wireless power module transmits about 5V and is completely safe and harmless. Edison and Tesla can finally be friends.¬†Power is transferred wirelessly from the base to the bulb.
