The Hono electric candle from Metaphys is just a brilliant interior design item. The simulated flame (LED light in fact) sways as airflow wafts over it. Capturing this essential element of a candlelight gives the Hono an intimate an pleasing quality.
The Hono, which runs 48 hours on a single charge, is turned on by scratching it with the included "matchstick" in the same way that you would like a match (but gentler). fan, it is turned off by "blowing it out". It includes both a stand for standalone use, or a wall mounting. It is particularly interesting to see the candle effect so close to a wall -- something which one doesn't often see for reasons which must be obvious.
