The latest lighting creation from the UK house of Mathmos is definitely unusual. Designed to look like a couple of globby alien heads, Blob and Flow are what Mathmos calls “touch-sensitive light pets.” I just call them “weird, but cool.”
Just plug the shiny zinc alloy duo into your USB port or outlet, and their glowing eyeballs come to life. Touch either one gently, and one of its LED eyeballs will start to “wink.” Another touch, and both eyes will blink wildly, fading between their native color and white light.
The oddball pair will ship starting in mid-June and is priced at £35.00 (appx. $50 USD). you can pre-order them over at the Mathmos site now.
