Kangaroo: A Portable Light That’s Also Flexible

Leave it to Studio Banana to continue to think outside the box as they keep designing things you’d never think you would need or want, like their napping-made-easy creations the Ostrich Nap Pillow, the Ostrich Pillow Junior, and the Ostrich Pillow Light. They’re back with the Kangaroo Light, a hexagon-shaped flexible light that’s also portable!


It’s made with a white, high-quality silicone exterior, meaning it’s splash proof and it cleans easily. Whether you want to use it in your car, as a private reading light, ambient lighting, a portable camping light, or as a nightlight, the options are limitless. It’s also super durable which means you can fold it, roll it, or bend it to fit your needs.


Inside, it houses 24 built-in LED lights that emit a soft glow on one side. It’s outfitted with a lithium-ion battery that gives you 2.5 hours of non-stop light and then it easily recharges via a USB port.


Studio Banana has successfully funded several projects via Kickstarter and the Kangaroo Light is their latest. Kick them some funds if you’re interested in the first round.
