9-Volt Flashlight: a Simple, Bright Idea
This tiny flashlight is about as minimal as it gets. Just snap the little LED light unit onto the top of any 9-volt battery, and voilà, you have a fully functional source of illumination. The compact light includes a trio of super-bright LEDs, which should be plenty for helping you find your keys in the dark.

Wii Feeling Blue? Go Green or Red Instead
If you’re looking for a quick and easy mod to change the look of your Nintendo Wii, here’s a kit that lets you easily change the color of the LEDs in the console’s DVD loading slot. The Talismoon DVD Gate is a simple kit that should take less than ten minutes to install, letting you quickly swap out those blue LEDs for red or green ones instead.

D-Battery Lamp Laughs in the Face of Complexity

D-Battery Lamp Laughs in the Face of Complexity
This delightfully minimal lighting fixture is the latest creation from Sam and Jude, the creative minds behind SUCK UK. The Little Lamp is literally just a lampshade strapped to an LED light source, strapped to a D-Cell battery. While the whole concept is a wee bit reminiscent of Richard Lawson’s minimal 9-Volt LED lamps, it’s different enough that I’ll give Sam and Jude a break.

Troja Arc Lamp Blows My Mind

Troja Arc Lamp Blows My Mind
On very rare occasion, I’ll see something that truly knocks me off my feet. That time is now. The Troja Arc Lamp is simply awe inspiring. Designed by Germany’s hansandfranz studio, the lamp features a sweeping arc that emits a warm halo of light around its subject.

Tokyoflash Geomesh LED Watch: What Time is It Again?

Tokyoflash Geomesh LED Watch: What Time is It Again?
In keeping with tradition, Japanese watch importer TokyoFlash is getting set to release yet another watch that might require an advanced degree to read. Their new Geomesh watch has a grid of 27 colored LEDs concealed beneath a mirrored finish.

10,000 LED Orbs Land in a Field in Italy

10,000 LED Orbs Land in a Field in Italy
Artist Giancarlo Neri has put together this stunning installation which places 10,000 individual colored LED orbs in a field. Each sphere gradually cycles through colors, creating a beautiful, dramatic vista. While the illuminated globes are absolutely stunning by night, they’re equally as interesting when turned off during the daylight hours. The installation, entitled Massimo Silenzio (Maximum Silence) is currently in place at the Circo Massimo in Rome, Italy, and will continue to be on exhibition through September 11th.

Tops With Frickin’ Laser Beams

Tops With Frickin’ Laser Beams
The guys from online shop MyVirtualZone just tipped me off to these little playthings. The appropriately named Laser Top has a little laser beam that projects out of the side as you spin it around. While I actually think the effect of the LEDs and the laser are pretty cool when its spinning, I think that the music that plays as it goes is about as ridiculous as it gets.

Little Dude Could be My Favorite USB Hub Ever

Little Dude Could be My Favorite USB Hub Ever
There’s something that’s just right about this USB hub. The little guy strikes a near-perfect balance between design, simplicity and functionality (although that’s the one place it falls a little short). Kikkerland’s USB Hub Man has flexible wire arms and legs with a port at the end of each one.

Philips Aurea Video Shows TV’s True Colors

Philips Aurea Video Shows TV’s True Colors
A few weeks back I told you about the new Philips Aurea flat screens, and their illuminated color LED frames. Now Philips has just posted a dramatic video clip by director Wong Kar Wai which really shows off what the set can do. For the first time, you can really see the cool color-shifting effects of the Aurea’s semi-transparent border.

Kikkerland LED Wall Art Constantly Changes Colors

Kikkerland LED Wall Art Constantly Changes Colors
Hang this piece of modern digital art on your wall, and you’ll get a never-ending light show of cycling colors. Kikkerland’s Geometric LED Board looks sort of like digital stained glass, gradually shimmering betweens colors, creating a variety of kaleidoscope-like patterns.

Tokyoflash Morse Code Watch: Dots and Dashes

Tokyoflash Morse Code Watch: Dots and Dashes
Every time watch importer TokyoFlash reveals another one of their wacky digital watches, it makes my giddy with excitement. So it is with much glee that I bring you their latest watch, which tells time in Morse Code. The aptly named Morse Code watch features a dot-matrix LED screen that can show the time in Morse Code dots and dashes, or sound it out through a tiny built-in speaker with the press of a button.

Magic Ball: Your Personal Clean Air Act

Magic Ball: Your Personal Clean Air Act
Does your closet smell like old gym socks? Is Fido stinking up the place and making you sneeze? Does somebody like onions and runny French cheese? If this sounds like your house, perhaps you could us one of these. The Antibac2k Magic Ball kills unpleasant odors, as well as removes allergens and contaminants from the air around you.

Digital Recycle Bin Saves Deleted Files

Digital Recycle Bin Saves Deleted Files
Currently just a conceptual design, the TEMPO is an external storage device that’s designed to prevent you from losing files you accidentally delete. The clever thing about it is that it actually looks like a little recycling bin (although it might be mistaken for a cup of really black coffee). Created by industrial designer Franco Cagnina for Intech, the TEMPO connects via Bluetooth to your Mac or PC and automatically stores backup copies of files as you delete them.

Technicolor Wii Casemod

Technicolor Wii Casemod
Nintendo modder MisterXausDE crafted this custom Nintendo Wii case which features bright LEDs that can change colors.
