Good ideas with bad execution, or good execution of what should be bad ideas - an analysis of inferior, off-beat or malfunctioning products, and how other people's failures can help us design better stuff.
Impossible objects #14: Pocket light folding bulb
I love the idea of a folding light that you can put in your pocket. It would be a bit like magic, except a pocket torch would serve the same end-purpose…
While not a commercial product, it is real and is apparently powered by a watch battery, with the “flat bulb” tucking inside a wallet-sized card frame.
