Dandelight – the little light pretty enough to be a flower


Most people look at dandelions and call them weeds. In the fall they become seed bearing balls of fluff where wishes are born if you’re a kid. If you’re a grownup, you’re probably upset at the damge they’ll do to your lawn. The Dandelight might get you to start believing the humble dandelion is pretty enough to be a flower again.

As the name implies, this is a light. It’s not just a light though. At first glance it looks like a little (very little) artistic reading light. There’s more to it than that. The poof ball that makes up the flower isn’t manufactured. That is a painstakingly reassembled dandelion. Someone actually used a real dandelion plant and attached it to a LED bulb to create the lamp you see. That’s dedication.

This is a very delicate lamp. It connects to a 9v battery on a thin copper stem. Just like a real dandelion, this little lamp is to be handled delicately. The final effect? A thing of techy, artistic beauty. The Dandelight is $140.

Donyae’s love for technology is based on a need to survive our future robotic overlords. Know thy enemy as you know yourself. But since even odds are on the zombie future, she has also learned how to prepare squirrel. You can find her on Facebook until the robots – or zombies – rise up.
