Every once in a blue moon I come across a concept that’s just amazing, and this is one of those times.
Combining great design and a sense of humor is tough to pull off, but Artist Lasse Klein’s new Abduction Lamp manages it with ease.
While I question the utility of this flashlight, the idea of carrying around what looks like a traditional incandescent light bulb on your keychain is just wacky enough that I thought I’d give it a mention.

The Tykho Bulb lamp can run on either battery power (4 x AA) or an AC adapter, and come in several bright colors.
This light projector casts an ever-changing animation of the phases of the moon onto your wall.
The moon phase projector from Banpresto can project a 2 foot diameter moon image from about 6 feet away. The projector gradually changes between all of the lunar phases over the course of about an hour.
These battery-operated LED lighting fixtures are perfect for the upcoming barbecue season. They look great on a picnic table or on a deck, bringing a bit of modern sensibility to the outdoors.
The oddly-named Havaleena light from Tayo Design Studio is a 20-inch tall tube with a brushed-aluminum finish and an acrylic frosted light diffuser at the top.
In my recent quest for unique lighting fixtures, I came across this minimal LED light source out of Germany.
The tiny fixture has a bright color-changing LED projector at the end of a flexible gooseneck. The light head clips onto a special 4.5-volt battery base that can provide up to 150 hours of illumination.

The Genso Kukan Aurora simulates the beautiful atmospheric phenomena known as the Aurora Borealis and projects the images on your wall or ceiling.
While LCD and DLP sets continue to move towards LEDs as their light source, high quality Liquid Crystal on Silicon LCOS (a.k.a. Sony’s SXRD and JVC’s HD-ILA) displays have so far been left out in the cold.
Moppels are cute little desk lamps, powered by long lasting LED lamp technology. Each lamp provides over 100,000 hours of life, and never needs replacing.
Moppel lights come in a variety of fun designs including dinosaurs, snakes, people and other shapes.
Industrial designer Josh Owen has created this simple lighting fixture that’s cast in the shape of a bowling pin. The cool part is that it’s got a tilt sensor inside of it that turns off when the lamp is knocked over, and turns back on when stood upright.
Somehow the idea of placing electrodes into a water-filled orb to seems like a bad idea. However, artist Scott J. Franklin has designed a series of glass lighting fixtures that do just that.
The WET Lamp from NON Design is a glass orb with a 10-watt xenon light bulb in the center, then filled with water.
