  • A man who calls himself a “developer during the day, hardware maker at night” invented an everlasting flower for his wife.
  • The mechanical tulip blooms when you touch it and turns red, white, or blue.
  • He said in a tweet that the flower will “never fade,” and other husbands are realising they need to “up their present game.”

A husband from Czech Republic has nailed Valentine’s Day by creating an everlasting mechanical flower for his wife that blooms when you stroke it.

Jiří Praus, who on Twitter calls himself a “developer during the day, hardware maker at night,” started teasing the creation earlier this month in a series of tweets.

He then revealed that what he had been making was a mechanical tulip as a present for his wife.

“It’s done! Mechanical tulip as a present for my wife,” he tweeted. “When caressed it blooms into various colors. And will never fade.”

 

The flower blooms in red, white, or blue when touched.

 

Praus added that the “spider web effects” the flower makes on the wall “were totally unplanned but incredible to look at.”

 

At one point, he even managed to get the flower to create a rainbow effect.

He said the flower was “almost like jewelry” — and hopefully his wife will think so.

 

The invention was turned into a Twitter moment, where people were calling him a “keeper” and other husbands were suggesting they needed to “up their present game.”

Some asked how he made the flower.

Praus tweeted a few photos showing how it’s operated.

 

He also said he plans to release full instructions soon for anyone hoping to copy the idea for their own loved one.

 

If that sounds like too much effort, though, he also sells some of his products online.
