This amazing floor lamp uses strands of brilliant electroluminescent tubes to form into an nearly infinite number of flowing organic shapes.
Designed by Jesus Felipe and Silvia Grimaldi of UK-based Nimble Critters, the ETree lamp is more of an interactive sculpture than simply a lamp.
Designed by Japan’s M+K Design, these slick lamps use modern lighting technology to offer a cool, otherworldly glow. To me, they look like something taken right off the set of Blade Runner or Minority Report.
Designers Maiko Watanabe and Koichi Tanaka’s Sweet Icicle Lamps encase a bright cold cathode tube in a block of crystal clear acrylic to add drama to any room.
Got an old Segway scooter lying around? Why not give it a makeover and get rid of that drab grey exterior?
California’s Segway Junkyard takes the personal transportation devices and gives them new life with custom paint, metal trim and shiny chrome wheels.
The police department in Osaka, Japan is about to get a whole lot wackier. Apparently, they’ve ordered these goofy rabbit-shaped lights for about 800 of their cars.
The bunny strobe lights are designed for use on vehicles patrolling the neighborhoods around schools, presumably so the kids can point and laugh at the cops.
The slick black case and bright, easy-to-read displays on these Slan LED watches really caught my eye.
There’s just something so refreshing about a digital watch that’s just clean and simple, unencumbered by extraneous information or newfangled display paradigms.
Looking to impress the ladies in the bedroom? This gadget slips under your bed and gives it a cool blue glow that just screams “it’s time for make sexytime”.
Just like those lights you see under pimpmobiles, this saucer-shaped light source slides beneath your bed frame and casts a dreamy blue light in all directions.
Bored with your old black or white Xbox 360 controller? How about pink or blue? I’m not sure if Microsoft is going for the whole “blue is for boys, pink is for girls” thing here, or just trying to give us a little color choice.
I came across this funky Pac-Man inspired bag over on Etsy earlier today. Handmade by Melissa and Zach of New York’s hobocampcrafts, the bag features the likeness of one of the dot-gobbler’s ghostly nemeses, Inky.
Using a bunch of carefully selected buttons, the artists stitched together the blue ghost from the classic 80s arcade game.
Stare at these trippy blue light-up butterflies for too long, and you won’t be able to get Inna-Gadda-Da-Vida out of you head either.
Designers Soner Ozenc and John Wischhusen created these electroluminescent butterflies called GloWings. Each see-through winged critter is loaded with blue electroluminescent wire to produce a soft blue-green glow.

Here’s a new digital watch I thought really stood out from the crowd. Nixon’s Answer watch comes in a couple of colors, but the bright blue and white one pictured here really caught my eye.
To complement its swimming pool blue case (they call it Sky Blue, but I know better), the Answer features a aquatic blue-backlit LCD screen.
Normally, I don’t think most analog watches fit in with the “high-tech” aesthetic here at Technabob, but leave it to London’s STORM Watches to prove me wrong. These retro-modern watches really do stand out from the crowd.
The award for T-shirt of the week has to go to this die hard gamer’s tee from Threadless contributor Lawrence Pernica.
The simply designed shirt uses a retro bitmap font and a couple of game “life” indicators to express this simple statement: “Video games ruined my life.
If you happen to have your cell phone ringer turned off, and you don’t care for the “vibrate” setting, you might want to check out these nifty things from London’s Mathmos.
These tiny Light Charms clip onto your mobile phone and blink whenever a call is coming in (thanks to those lovely radio frequency emissions.)
Designer Richard Lawson has created the oh-so-simple LED lights that clip on the top of an ordinary 9-volt battery.
Originally designed for a Mathmos-sponsored design competition, they’re now available for you to purchase for the first tim.
For some reason, this mini desk refrigerator makes me think of the spaceship from Mork and Mindy. [I’m (carbon) dating myself, I know.] Actually, it’s supposed to be a giant egg. Come to think of it, so was Mork’s ship.
