Designer Xinyue Yang has created an unusual sensor-enabled lamp named Breeze, which lights like fire. Similar to real life flames, the biomechanics require the user to slowly blow onto the lamp in order for it to get stronger and brighter.
There is a microphone in a lamp to detect any changes in airflow where the data will be translated into the brightness of the LED strip. ‘Breeze’ is portable and can light up others once they get close to each other using hall sensors that detect the inbuilt magnets of the other lamps.
Finally, the designer envisions users mounting the product in their very own creative and inventive ways. For instance, using ‘Breeze’ outside allows the natural wind to take over, creating an innovative interaction between form and function.
