ULO is a night-light that helps establish a nighttime routine by inspiring interaction and play. Each orb nested in the lamp is removable, and charges kinetically, meaning children and adults can charge it as they play and interact with ULO. After playtime is over the orb is returned to the base and serves as a night light, using yellow light that doesn’t interrupt sleeping patterns, and provides the user with a sense of safety. ULO is inviting with a characterful alien-like form that evokes whimsy, and playfulness, while eliminating fear and loneliness.
