CRAZY WEDNESDAY: SHINY PRETTY THINGS

It’s just too long since I covered any shiny pretty things, so here’s LunaBrite. This immensely lovely lighting system is said to be eco-friendly, child safe, non-toxic and weather resistant.

Although information is a bit sparse (the website is pretty, but not very informative), I’ve gleaned that they are fully solar, probably, as they don’t need any batteries or electricity, and recharge in sunlight. I say probably, since there are patents out for bio-luminescent and chemo-luminescent light sources, and hybrids of these and other lights. LunaBrite lights are supposed to fully recharge after about 30 minutes of sunlight, and to glow for up to 12 hours, gradually fading as they lose charge.

The website does speculate on where LunaBrite systems might be applied, giving a gorgeous illustration of the lights being used to illuminate the edges of a harbour walkway.  They have probably made the light casing sew-able or glue-able, too, since their other ideas are for sports clothing piping. I particularly like the glowing trainers, though.

Personally, I’d mostly like to glue it to my skirting board tops, along my hall, stairs and landing, and dispense with the need for electric lights in those areas altogether. I think they’d look so lovely that I’d actually look forward to night-time.
