What you see on the right is a wooden lightbulb that, when turned on, will resemble that of a blazing fire, even though it is far from catching one of those deadly flames. The first time you lay your eyes on it, you might be fooled into thinking that this is actually a block of wood which was specially carved out to resemble a lightbulb. However, when you turn it on at the flick of a switch, the wooden lightbulb will jump to life right away, radiating an eerie, fiery light that would definitely make Thomas Alva Edison proud of his invention.
The whole reason of existence for this illusion is due to Japanese designer Ryosuke Fukusada, where an ancient technique known as Rokuro is applied. This is made possible thanks to the creation of an extremely thin layer of wood (some say impossible) which enables the light to shine through, hence making you see as though the wood itself is glowing. Talk about a sublime amalgamation of modern design with traditional Japanese crafts!
