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.” Just plug the shiny zinc alloy duo into your USB port or outlet, and their glowing eyeballs come to life.

Our Cylon Overlords Would Approve of This Watch
Although Cylons don’t really need watches, since they’re androids and probably have some sort of on-board timer circuit, I’m sure that our robot overlords would approve of us human scum wearing these watches. The Robot 1259C Watch was designed by Japan’s Seahope.

Scope Watch Looks Like More Work Than Its Worth
Normally when I talk about weird watches that turn up over at Yanko Design, they’re concepts you can’t buy if they are appealing. Today we have a new and sort of cool watch called the Scope Watch that looks like it would be hard to use.

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. The Archetype has an aluminum exterior and a polycarbonate diffuser, with the LED cleverly hidden inside, which means that the shade is the lamp itself.
