To start off this video, I threw out some trivia questions to my chat room. I have the new Aurora Palette made by a company called Banpresto out of Japan. This is a very cool and fun gadget – and even includes glowing lights!!! This is a relaxing interior light that projects an aurora-like light on the ceiling or wall. Along with the colors, it also wavers as if it were a real aurora. It includes a timer function for 30, 60, 90 and 120 minutes and works for about twenty hours with four AA batteries.
Banpresto has come up with a way to project the beautiful Northern Lights right on your own ceiling. The Aurora Palette projects an “aurora borealis-like” lighting effect onto your walls or ceiling that will supposedly create a relaxing mood in the room. The projector head can even be angled and swiveled for aiming where the light show hits.
It’s almost like a glowing kaleidoscope of sorts. You can set it on the floor, or even on a desk to point it towards the wall instead of the ceiling. Since it runs on batteries, it’s best to set the timer on the machine so you don’t kill the batteries.
The lights are actually stationary, but you can still make them move around. There’s a little tray inside the machine that rotates. As it moves around, you’ll get the various effects. There’s blue, green and red lights included. Of course, the further away you place the machine from the wall or ceiling, the larger the display will be.
You know I love glowing objects, so you know I’m loving this one. I’m eating it up! If you know of any other devices like this, let me know. I may even potentially make it my own.
