Bed Light, A Motion Activated LED Light For Your Nighttime Bathroom Breaks


My girlfriend wakes up every darn morning around 3am, for a bathroom break. She’s kind enough not to turn any lights on, but I still hear her fumbling about in the dark, trying to make her way back to the bed. Do I feel sorry? No, sleep is important! But with the BedLight, we might find some compromise. It’s two 5ft strips of LEDs that you place underneath your bed, and that turn on as soon as they detect movement, and turn off after your 30s to 10 minute adjustable timer runs out. They come with all the mounting accessories, including clips to hide the cables, and can ship with either one or two sensors, depending on how many sides of your bed you need to outfit with the BedLight. Price is either $55 or $69, depending on your sensor requirement.

Death Star Mood Light, Since The Movie Is About To Launch And Stuff


You know you’re going to be flooded with Star Wars stuff over the coming weeks. It’s normal, the movie is about to open in theatres. The Death Star Mood Light is an awesome, 6 inch light that looks just like the Death Star. It runs off 3 AAA batteries, but can also be powered through USB. It lights up green or red, or the same color if you’re colour-blind. There really isn’t much else to say about this, other than to point out that, well, it’s a Star Wars Mood Light and looks great. It’s $49.99.

The Luminoodle Is A Versatile, Super Bright LED Light Strip


LED tech has advanced quite a bit in recent years as they’ve gotten brighter and started consuming even less energy. The Luminoodle has a questionable name, but is in fact a pretty useful product.

Luminoodle™ is a 5-foot strand of ultra-bright, waterproof, and USB-powered LEDs designed with various, easy-to-use mounting solutions included in the bag. At 10-20 times brighter than your average Christmas lights, it’s the most adaptable, intuitive, and portable string lighting system ever created. It’s the world’s first completely waterproof, flexible, ultra-bright ambient lighting solution that can be hung, strung, hooked, stuck to or wrapped around basically anything.

Mounting options include using one of the 3 (included) “Noodle ties”, or the magnets integrated at either end of the strand. For power, you can hook it up to your external battery pack if you own one, or to the one provided at the $39 price level. That should be enough for 6 hours of continuous use. It’s $19 if you already have your battery.

Surreal Lighting: Gummy Bear Chandelier

Gummy Bear Chandelier0


The Jello Candelier aka the Gummy Bear chandelier is every child’s dream, save for the fact that it’s made from acrylic gummy bears and is, hence, inedible. That aside, it’s an impressive display and will add a splash of color and a bit of whimsy to whatever room it’s installed in. With the flick of a switch, the chandelier will emit a colorful yet subtle glow.

If you think about it, you actually get the best of both worlds with the chandelier: you get a gorgeous assortment of gummy bears–minus the ants!Continue Reading

Atomic Lighting Tubes Add Flair To The Underbelly Of Your Home

Almost every home has that section in the basement where ugly black plumbing pipes are visible. You can leave them there, and try to get used to their gritty look, or spend the money and hide them behind drywall. Or, you can wait until the Atomic Lighting Tubes are released. We don’t know much about them, other than they seem to be LED-filled pipes that go over your existing black pipes. We don’t know how they’re powered, we don’t even know how much they’ll cost. They’re being made by Malgorzata Ratajczak and Sebastian Szlabs from studio Emandes, and word is that they’ll hit the marketplace by next January.

Hit the jump for a couple more pics and links.

Whimsical LED Balloon Light Is Perfect For… Whimsical Settings?

We’re not terribly creative, so we can’t suggest the ideal places where the above product would be perfect. Parties? That seems too obvious. But the Balloon Lamp, which is designed by Kouichi Okamoto, just looks like it would be perfect somewhere, if only we could think of where that is. Powered by a high-intensity LED light, you can just hang it anywhere you want with the included hook. Two regular balloons are included, but you’re of course free to use your own, of any color. The two Li-Ion batteries included provide up to 100 hours of illumination, so it’ll last through whatever event you end up using it on, though it’s probably not the best solution as permanent lighting for the home.

Whimsy doesn’t come cheap though: a set of two will set you back $77.

Endlessly Reconfigurable Tetris Lamp Looks Awesome

The picture is pretty self-explanatory. But just in case, you’re looking at a lamp made up of Tetris blocks. You hook one of the blocks to an outlet and it lights up. You’re then free to stack the others as you please, and they’ll light up as soon as they touch the first one. You can place them in any order and orientation you want, and you can order as many blocks as you please, or at the very least, as you can safely stack. At least, that’s what we’re understanding here. And it appears that one block is £29 or roughly $45, so a really fancy configuration can get pretty expensive quickly.

Peel Wall Light Looks Like Your Wall Is Peeling Off To Reveal Wonders Beneath

By David Ponce

It’s always nice to decorate your new digs with style. And we think the above Corner Light, also called Peel Wall Light (we’re not sure of the actual name), fits the bill quite nicely.

The integrated form implies the lamp is part of the architecture of the room, but the purposefully exposed cable reveals that the light’s placement is temporary. The light is held up with a simple steel bracket that mounts to the wall and an aluminum frame; a fabric diffuser magnetically attaches to the frame to complete the lamp.

Yeah, it’s about as creative a lamp as we’ve come across lately, but there’s a few things wrong with it. First off, we can’t find the actual manufacturer, only where it’s being sold. And also, the price: $910. That’s a lot of dollars for a lamp, creativity or not. Lastly, to actually view the product and possibly place an order, you have to sign up with the website, which we really freaking hate.

Still, hit the link to purchase if you’ve got the bank, the patience, and the interest.
