What is it? Flyte is a thing of beauty, a levitating lightbulb powered through the air via induction. As much an art installation or talking point as a way to light your home, it’s a wondrous take on illumination. When’s it due? October 2015. Why are we excited? In the home of our dreams, the Flyte would feature prominently (alongside a 5K iMac and monkey butlers). We know it’s grounded in solid science, but we can’t help feeling a sense of childlike awe at the simple elegance of it all. It is, dare we say it, magical.
