Defined by many the "courtesy light" of the 21st century, able to turn on when someone's hands are near, Flickering is useful in the most varied circumstances and contexts: in your bag, when camping, for reading, searching for the keyhole.
Completely Made in Italy, we can without a doubt define it a modern candle or even a "sight-support" torch.
Only on Eppela may you get Flickering at an exclusive price: 18 euro classic version (80 euro for 5 items) or 22 personalised (100 for 5 items).
The Flickering project is fruit of the genius of two young designers, Fabrizio and Thea, and their respective passions: for technology and fashion gadgets. Designed during a workshop organised by Sovrappensiero Design Studio, it aims to become a success through crowdfunding.
Flickering is the result of the union of open source technologies Arduino and Adafruit with which a functional prototype has been realised combining technology and fashion gadgets. With a minimal design and simple, linear shape, the product recalls a magic, mysterious world, capable of surprising and stimulating the imagination of those using it.
The heart of the idea is a simple capacitive sensor, typical of smartphone displays, based on the principal of detecting the electrical capacity of a condenser. And it is this sensor that allows Flickering to activate, perceiving we are near.
Through laser technology, the product may be personalised, inscribing the owner's name and making it unique to its kind.
Functional, adaptable and mysterious - these are the main characteristics of the product and the research behind it.
To realise our project, we need your help. We are convinced that Flickering has great potential yet to be discovered. Support us!
