Huey the Chameleon Lamp Changes Colors to Match His Surroundings
November 23rd, 2010
A while back I discovered these cool RGBy LED lamps from Japan, which could automatically detect the color on which they were placed and change to match. While they were quite cool, they were also quite expensive . Now, thanks to the folks at ThinkGeek, you can now experience the same concept, in a decidedly more whimsical package, and at a much lower price point.
Huey is a chameleon – and just like the real deal, he automagically changes colors to match his environment. More precisely, you place Huey on a colored surface, and his electronic guts will do their best to blend in with the color he’s placed on. If you don’t care for that color, you can put him in color-cycle mode and squeeze the lizard when you see a color you like.
You can get your hands on Huey over at ThinkGeek for $29.99 (USD). The light-up reptiles are currently backordered, but they expect another batch in the next day or so. Keep in mind that he’s available in limited quantities, so you’ll want to get your order in sooner rather than later.
