People aren’t that keen on turning photo gear into furniture after all

Phlite, a way to turn cameras into household lamps, has failed to reach its Kickstarter funding target.


Phlite, a way to make household lamps out of photography kit, has failed to reach its Kickstarter funding target. Apparently nobody is really into turning their camera gear into furniture. Really?

Enlight Photo is the company that hoped to turn your equipment into household lamp holders and wanted £25,000 to make it happen. At the end of Phlite’s Kickstarter campaign, however, only £8,906 was raised. From forums I’ve been reading, it didn’t sound like this idea was going to take off. Photographers can be nutty about their gear. But this took geekdom to another level.

Well, stranger things have taken off…  Who would have thought the iPod would make media history?
