Japanese YouTuber Invents Light Bulb That Flickers When a Couple Breaks Up
Japanese YouTuber Marina Fujiwara has created a device that blinks brightly whenever someone shares a breakup post online.
The device, which aims to make single people feel better during the holiday season, looks like an ordinary bulb connected to the internet through a “bridge,” according to Fujiwara’s blog post as translated by Unilad.
This is all achieved with an Internet of Things (IoT) home appliance that allows the user to change the brightness of the light from their smartphone.
“If you connect to other apps and turn on the electricity when you go home, the possibilities are endless,” she said.
“First of all, connect a ‘bridge’ that will become a hub to connect the light bulb to the Internet,” Fujiwara added. “Setup is completed by simply connecting to a WiFi router at home with a LAN cable. Very easy.”
