The inventors of the viral Ostrich Pillow are at it again, promoting another cool new product on Kickstarter. Only this time, instead of an item that’s meant to block out light, the team at kawamura-ganjavian are making it easier to see. Dubbed the Kangaroo Light, this flexible, glowing pad is meant to be a playful and practical solution to flashlights, which all too often get lost in the deep abyss of purses, bookbags and cabinets.
Instead of projecting light through a tube, the cleverly-designed device is made of triangular segments that allow it to fold up and expand according to different needs — it can easily fit flat into a handbag or bend into a stand-up desk lamp.
Twenty-four built-in LEDs give the Kangaroo lamp its soft, dreamy glow. There are also multiple lighting intensities and modes, including pulsing and random flickering. When fully charged, the mat can run for up to 2.5 hours.
According to the Kickstarter page, the studio hopes to raise £50,000 for the project by late June and they’re enticing backers with early samples of the Kangaroo Light. Judging by the popularity of their last invention, we wouldn’t be surprised to see this hit store shelves soon.
