I’m obsessed with slightly silly pseudo-nature designs, so Firefly Magic’s Firefly Lights immediately caught me eye when I spotted them on Popgadget.
Similar to NYU student John Schimmel’s Networked Nightlight (hmmm..coincidence?), Firefly Magic’s lights are programmed to flicker and fade just like real fireflies. You can put them in jars, or strategically place them around your yard for a serious faux-nature experience all year round. Unlike the short-lived real thing, Firefly Lights last for 100,000 hours and can be powered by an AC adapter, AA batteries, or, better still – through solar-rechargeable batteries.
