This Glow-In-The-Dark Rope Is Surprisingly Versatile

Kirstin Fawcett

Last fall, Utah-based electronics startup Power Practical created a fully portable, USB and battery-powered LED light strip called the Luminoodle. Intended as a camping light source, the Luminoodle raised more than $388,000 via Kickstarter. However, people quickly found their own uses for the glowing rope, incorporating it into home design and using it to light paint, reports.

To make the Luminoodle even more multipurpose, Power Practical recently asked customers what they wanted, and used their answers to create the 5-foot long Luminoodle Color and the 20-foot long Luminoodle Basecamp. Unlike their predecessor, the two ropes glow in 14 different colors, and have a dimmer and an on-and-off switch, both of which are controlled by a wireless remote.

The second iteration of the versatile glowing light is being funded for production via another Kickstarter campaign. It's already surpassed its $25,000 goal well before its April 22 deadline. Preorder prices for the Luminoodle start at $19. For more information, watch the above video or check out the product's Kickstarter.
