We all have those apps on our phone we rarely use, or never even notice. Flashlight is one of those for most of us. Don’t get me wrong – it’s a useful feature, but it’s not one I use every day. That is until I got myself one of these 3D printed clip-on mini lamps.
Italian designer Nazzareno Ruspolini designed these adorable mini lamps, named ibat-Jour. It’s a playful take on the Italian word for lampshade abat-jour. The mini lamps come in four different styles that clip on over your iPhone to soften the otherwise blinding beam of its flashlight.
It got me to thinking of some of the situations when this portable mini lamp could come in handy.
Make your date nights special. These mini lamps are definitely better than candles on the dinner table, especially during summers.
Parents can use it for story time with kids. The light is bright enough and sets the perfect mood for bedtime. As your kids are drifting to sleep, you can make a quiet exit.
Girlfriends can use the cute little lamp for those late night chit-chats.
I would love to draw my own colors and patterns on top, what about you? When do you think you would use these mini lamps?
