The lamp is designed to work as a regular desk lamp but then can be turned sideways to become a flashlight. The light source shifts upon turning the lamp on its side. There is also a "Healing Light" mode that emits a blue glow.
You can adjust the brightness of the lamp by twisting it. It runs on batteries and can be charged up for use as a flashlight. You can get the eneloop starting in September in Japan for about $155.
