This Dancing Drone Is A Beautiful Painter Of Light

To show off the world’s most precise drone system, PRENAV made this video demonstrating how exact its drones can be. The drone basically plots points in the air and then becomes a dancing array of light that’s oh-so-fun to watch. The PRENAV system supposedly lets drones write letters and draw shapes in the sky too, but I’m totally cool with watching the lights.


A Cheap $10 Bike Brake Light That Only Glows When You're Stopping

A Car And Drones Spinning Around In A Circle Is A Fantastic Light Show

Here’s a really cool video that’s a little bit trippy and a lot of bit fun. A car and a fleet of quadcopter drones are outfitted with lights and then made to dance and spin and move around while a camera captures them. It’s light painting but with a car and drones as the paintbrush.


Awesome LED Black Hole Water Slide Is Like Flying Through A Wormhole

The coolest water slide in the world and perhaps the universe is this black hole water slide in Bremerhaven, Germany’s Bad 1 Water Park.

Light Your Maze Of A Bedroom With A Glowing Pac-Man Ghost

The maze that Pac-Man has to navigate in his quest to gobble up all those pellets is nothing compared to the laundry-covered floor that most of us have to tip-toe through on our way to the bathroom in the middle of the night. And while the ghosts in Pac-Man serve as a hindrance, this colour-changing pixelated lamp will actually help you get around in the dark.


This Gorgeous Steampunk Lamp Would Look Perfect In My Flying Ship

I wish I had the disposable income to purchase niceties like this and pretend I’m some sort of swash-buckling captain of a steampunk boat of the skies. Until this fantasy becomes reality (never), I’ll just have to admire the handwork of others, with this excellent lamp from a crafty fellow by the name of Leander Lavendel being a prime example.


Gorgeous Silk Lamps Bloom Like Flowers When You Turn Them On

Studio DRIFT made these lovely lamps that feel alive because they have been designed to bloom like a flower.
