The Floating Lampshade

Spotted this cool little thing the other day and liked the idea of a lamp that is suspended in mid air by nothing at all. It’s like a miracle but not really because the lamp is actually suspended by a type of protective film that is semi-transparent when viewed directly, and transparent when viewed at an angle. Cool, huh? The light source of this lamp is placed at the center of the ring of film, creating a lampshade that might be transparent, but mutes the light emitting from its center through the layer of half-transparency regardless of the angle from which it is viewed. link
