Is the Kangaroo Light a night light, a reading lamp, a desk lamp, a flashlight, bathroom light, a bag light or a place mat? It is all of them and in fact the fun part about the Kangaroo Light is figuring out new ways you can use it. And for the techie ones out there who like to hack the heck out of things, you will probably be ecstatic to know that the Kangaroo Light is arduino compatible and totally customizable!
The Kangaroo Light has 24 built-in LED lights that are enclosed in a soft flexible white silicone exterior that is splash proof. The LED lights are powered by a built-in rechargeable Lithium-Ion battery that offers about 2.5 hours of non-stop light. The batteries can be charged using any USB power outlet.
This amazing light is light and portable which makes it the perfect companion when you go on a camping trip. It is flexible so you can easily slip it into a backpack or even your pocket. Drop it into your handbag and you have an illuminated bag. Perfect for looking for small items.
What makes the Kangaroo Light totally awesome is with the arduino support and an incorporated accelerometer and touch electrodes, it can be made interactive. It also features sound sensitivity and light alarms. Illumination can be controlled and it has different modes such as on, off, flicker, pulsing and the intensity can be changed. A free app is available for connecting wirelessly and customizing the Kangaroo Light. With a little creativity and some experimentation, the possibilities are endless.
The Kangaroo Light also has the honor of being one of the selected items to be featured on the MoMA (Museum of Modern Art) Store. Studio Banana, the people behind the light are also the same people who brought you the wacky Ostrich Pillow.
