Rgb Light: Because a Cmyk Light Would be Too Gloomy

Rgb Light: Because a Cmyk Light Would be Too Gloomy
Designed by Fabian Nehne and Martin Meier, the RGB Light is, as Szymon Blaszczyk said, a great gift for Photoshop geeks. Unfortunately I don’t think it’s for sale. The point, of course, is teaching the physics of the additive color model.

Trash Me Recyclable Lamps: Made Not to Last

Trash Me Recyclable Lamps: Made Not to Last
American designer Victor Vetterlein‘s Trash Me lamps are made to be transient, but useful and Earth-friendly. Each lamp is made from nothing but four egg cartons, water, and some aluminum screws.

Tea Light Lets You Hold Teatime Anytime

Tea Light Lets You Hold Teatime Anytime
Designed by Jan Bergstein, “TEELICHT” is a lamp that looks like an upside-down cup, with a light switch made to look like a teabag tag. I hope no one’s going to protest when I say that this is a tealightful idea.

Mathmos Blob and Flow “Light Pets” have Glowing Eyes

Mathmos Blob and Flow “Light Pets” have Glowing Eyes
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.”

Ufo Lamps Are a Sci-Fi Geek’S Dream

Ufo Lamps Are a Sci-Fi Geek’S Dream
I am a big sci-fi fan and like to read sci-fi and watch sci-fi flicks. Any fan of sci-fi or cool interior design will really appreciate these sweet lamps that Jason Dietz has built and will be showing off at the Maker Faire this month.

Archetype: Lampshade or Shadelamp?

Archetype: Lampshade or Shadelamp?
Designed by Goodmorning Technology for Milan-based lighting store Luceplan, the Archetype lamp combines the classic shape of a traditional lamp shade with modern LED technology, resulting in a device that is as familiar and approachable as the lamps we’re used to, but is far more efficient and longer-lasting.

Lamp/Lamp: Introduce a Bit of Wtf in Your Room

Lamp/Lamp: Introduce a Bit of Wtf in Your Room
No one really looks at lamps and bulbs; we just need them to see everything else. Designer Hironao Tsuboi is having none of that! He has guaranteed that you will stare at his creation, the lamp/lamp.

LED Tube Lamp Offers Colorful, Tubular Light

LED Tube Lamp Offers Colorful, Tubular Light
This is definitely one of the more unusual lamps I’ve seen in a while. The tube-shaped lighting fixture is loaded up with colorful LEDs, and can be adjusted to almost an infinite variety of hues to suit your mood.

Star Wars Speakers Look Like Lamps for No Apparent Reason

Star Wars Speakers Look Like Lamps for No Apparent Reason
These strange cylinder-head Stormtrooper and Darth Vader are actually speakers, although they look more like lamps.  Either way, they’re butt-ugly. And no, they aren’t bobbleheads either. You can simply plug in your mp3 player and play your tunes.

Less Lamp: Break Your Lamp the Minute You Get It

Less Lamp: Break Your Lamp the Minute You Get It
Here’s a crazy idea for those of you with a sense of the absurd. How’d you like to spend about $800 on a handmade plaster lamp, only to crack it open with a pick axe as soon as you take it out of the box?

Recycled Ink Cartridges Get New Life as Lamps

Recycled Ink Cartridges Get New Life as Lamps
If you regularly use an inkjet printer, you can certainly try and recycle your cartridges by refilling them with more ink. But get real – most of the time, your empties just end up in the dumpster.

USB Giant Keyboard Lamps: Esc Darkness and Ctrl the Light

USB Giant Keyboard Lamps: Esc Darkness and Ctrl the Light
Need some extra light on your desktop so you can see what you’re typing? These whimsical lamps are great for computer geeks who want to show their love for their keyboards. They’re also pretty good if you’re a giant.

Bloom Battery Cordless Lamp Lets You Take Your Lighting With You

Bloom Battery Cordless Lamp Lets You Take Your Lighting With You
At first glance, this might look like any other minimal modern table lamp, but on closer examination, this unique lighting fixture cuts the cord and can go anywhere you go. Designed by Rob Slewe of BLOOM, the Battery portable lamp has a built in battery pack that provides enough juice to power a high efficiency 11-watt fluorescent bulb.

Ryan Mclhinney: the Human Katamari Prince

Ryan Mclhinney: the Human Katamari Prince
Designer Ryan McElhinney must be a fan of Katamari Damacy; some of his lovely creations are basically huge mishmashes of toys that form what would mundane or traditional household fixtures, like this grandfather clock. McElhinney uses recycled toys for his creations, bonded together (with a katamari?)

Enfren Free Style LED Lamp is Also Fun to Play With

Enfren Free Style LED Lamp is Also Fun to Play With
Enfren’s new environment-frenly friendly lamp isn’t called a “free style lamp” for nothing. The lamp not only has a bendy neck that allows users to adjust the height or angle of the light, the LEDs are separated into five disks that resemble contact lens cases.

Moonwalk Lamp: Because Astronauts have Bright Minds

Moonwalk Lamp: Because Astronauts have Bright Minds
I can only think of a handful of other jobs that are as awesome as being an astronaut. Being a technabob blogger is one of them. So is being an ice cream taste tester. What else…no, that’s it.
