On the Florian Dussopt Design Studio, a London-based design studio which takes "inspiration from Physics such as optics, sound and energies to create experiences and meaningful story telling projects," has created the EM ("ElectroMagnetic") table, an object that is capable of producing a localised electromagnetic field that lights up "fluorescent tubes within a short range without any physical contact."
The EM table allows the user to interact with an energy that is otherwise invisible.
An electronic circuit is embedded in the table and turns a low current into an electromagnetic field, acting directly on the gas within the fluorescent tube.
It is advised that electronic devices should be kept away when the table is switched on.
