Bamboo can crack if its inner stem wall contracts when exposed to dry air. It is not all bad, however, that the fibers crack all the way from top to bottom, as new opportunity may arise from the cracks. For instance, a light bulb is placed inside of a cracked bamboo to make the Coat Cap Lamp, with the plant’s two ends slightly bent. The light can be turned off with a gentle pull. The Tail Light, with its switch designed as the tail and light as the body of a gecko, features wireless charging and adhering magnets. Both of the products are fun gadgets to own.
