FLEXiT Light is flexible for your needs
by Mark R
Some of you might remember when we reported on the Striker Magnetic Light Mine, which is a red magnetic ball capable of bringing light where it is needed.
The same company that made the Magnetic Light Mine has made the FLEXiT Light, which also capable of pretty much the same thing, but in a different way.
This “magic carpet of LEDs” can be folded and bent like you see in the picture. It reminds me of Black and Decker’s Snakelight, but instead of having a light on the end of the apparatus, lights are all over the place on one side. Just think of it as several Snakelights in a row, with lights on the spine and not on the head. So I suppose it would be like a…whatever you call a group of snakes, light.
To make it even more convenient, the FLEXiT also includes a loop for hanging with a pair of neodymium magnets for sticking to metal surfaces.
It is powered by 3 AA batteries which are separated from the twisting mat itself. You notice that the battery flap can serve as sort of a holder for this thing, like the stand for your flatscreen television.
You should be able to get the FLEXiT from the Striker Store for about $29.99.
