AmpLamp concept combines lighting with audio

It's always nice when a device is a multitasker. And if anyone watches the cooking show, "Good Eats," they'll know how a multitasking device can save you money and space. However, what would you say to a lamp that is also a stereo speaker?

The AmpLamp is a concept design that sports the form of a lamp, yet has speakers tucked away within the lamp shade. The base of the lamp has a subwoofer.

It also uses Airsound, which is noticeable by the flared out speakers on the sides of the lamp.

The Allume Retractable Light for versatile lighting

The Allume Retractable Light for versatile lighting

As I type this up, I am currently staring at the chandelier in my dining room. The rental company decided it hung a little too low. So instead of being thorough and making a nice clean job of shortening the wire they just hooked the chain it hangs from a little higher and let the excess chain and cord sort of hang there.

The HomeStar Spa turns your bathroom into a planetarium

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.
