E-Light Entertainment Light Looks Like Tesla Coil, Isn’t, Should Be

Tesla Light

By Evan Ackerman

The only reason I find the E-Light Entertainment Light at all remarkable is that it looks like a
tesla coil. Seriously, that’s it. What it’s designed to be is a combination lighting and speaker system that clips around patio umbrellas “to add dinner music and soft illumination to your alfresco dining.” I don’t know about you, but I think I’m alergic to alfresco. You can plug an MP3 player (or anything else with a 3.5mm jack) into it, and the rechargeable batteries last for 6 hours, or 12 hours if you only want light or music, not both. When you put it on the recharging dock, it turns into a desk lamp, as in the picture. You can buy it for a vaguely ridiculous $100 from Frontgate.

I think that Frontgate should throw a little R&D money at this thing and turn it into an actual musical tesla coil, like the awesome one in the video after the jump.
