A few days back I wrote up a usb hub that happened to have a task light attached, the usefulness of the light was a bit of a stretch. However, at least there was the hub so it was still a practical and useful item. Yet this string of fairy lights can only be described as shiny.
If you're looking for a USB hub with more than one use, besides being one of the many that just happens to look cool. This little guy is a nice alternative, it not only has 4 different ports but a light as well.
If you enjoy your baths but candlelight isn't quite the right mood for you, this cool little planetarium is definitely great for those that are in need of mood lighting. With this you can lay back as it casts pretty starry skies onto your walls.
It makes me wish I could sit still long enough to soak in the tub, however, I just tend to enjoy showers way more. For those that aren't as squirmy as I am, you can also flip the planetarium over and have it cast different colors and designs into the water itself.
The Homestar Spa from SEGA Toys is being sold for $70. It might also be cool for those with hot tubs to give different lighting than the boring colored bulbs that are usually featured in hot tubs.
Those that have a thing for tea time can show their love for teacups even when they've had their fill of chamomile for the day. These little lights are made using old tea cups random teacups, giving them each a unique look.
As of this past spring this cute little dandelion was made available to purchase. The cute little puff ball is meant to resemble the last point a dandelion reaches, when you can blow the seeds into the wind.
The lamp has a resin cast shade and an aluminum stand and would look great in any contemporary home. From the looks of the site it appears that there are two different sizes.
This Lamp Chop Light reminds me of a pop up book, except it's for you wall and it actually has a real function. Not that pop up books aren't cool and all, but half the time the story to go with the pictures that propelled themselves at you, were practically nonexistent.
This cool concept light gives the perfect opportunity to screw with your stoner friends and maybe even the occasional drunken ones. The LED lamp is meant to look like it is tearing through the wall, but completely visible when it's off. It is meant to blend in with your wall.
It's still early days for LED home lighting systems; they're certainly more flexible and, in some cases, efficient than traditional lighting, but for now they're seen as a niche product. Buying off-the-shelf is limited, so usually your choice is to pay for a custom install or build the whole rig yourself; this Instructable goes for the latter, and details a homebrew system that's either controlled by what's on the TV or remotely via the owner's BlackBerry. Make sure to check out the video of the set-up in action after the cut!
