Here’s a cool way to add a little extra splash of color to your room without breaking the bank. These compact LED mood lights let you choose from 256 different colors using a clever touch-sensitive color chart on the side.
You simply use the color selector bar like a color slider on your computer, picking the hue you’re looking for with a touch of your finger.
The little lights each have three 1-watt LEDs, and are powered by a built-in USB rechargeable battery. Battery life is rated at 6 hours on a full charge.
You wouldn’t want to try and read a book by these, but that’s not what they’re designed for. They look like they’d be great as accent lights in a darkened or dimly-lit room, though. The official brightness is spec’d at 150 lumens for each one, but they don’t look quite that bright to me. Still, they look pretty cool to me.
If you remember, a couple of years back Philips introduced their similar Livingcolors LED lights, which allow you to adjust to a color of your choice, but they still cost over $150 each. While these cheap clones might not be quite as stylish or as bright, they sell for just over $14 (USD) each over at Chinavasion, so you could fill a whole room with them on the cheap.
