Any fluorescent bulb held near this basic modern side table design and style by Florian Dussopt will ‘magically’ turn on with out becoming plugged into a energy supply. The EM (electromagnetic) table activates the bulbs with an embedded circuit that affects the mercury fuel inside them, generating them glow.
The electronic circuit in the table turns a low current into an electromagnetic discipline, producing an invisible field of vitality that users can interact with by holding fluorescent bulbs above its surface. Of course, you do not want to deliver any electronics anywhere near it except if you want them to cease doing work.
The table seems to be a tribute to Nikola Tesla’s Wardenclyffe Tower, which attempted a comparable feat on a a lot larger scale. Tesla hoped to use the identical type of electromagnetic area to transmit wireless electricity, but was by no means successful.
