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

Sure, there are plenty of companies making arcade cabinets these days, but I’ve never seen one quite like this. The cabinet is translucent and gives you a light show while you get your game on.
In what’s probably the least subtle cabinet design ever made, Official Game Haven’s CrystalCade arcade system is loaded up with tons of brightly- colored LEDs which cycle through various programmable patterns.
Is that drab old monochromatic keyboard getting you down? This keyboard from Korea’s Luxeed features color changing LEDs under each and every key.
While it can certainly be used to produce seizure-inducing displays of blinking color, the keyboard comes with software that lets you do more subtle things, like just set the keyboard to a light up with a single hue that strikes your mood, or create intricate patterns of color.
Do you like rainbows (and ponies and lollipops too)? Now you can bring them inside your house (just the rainbows, not the ponies or lollipops, unless you have some Dum Dums or Chupa Chups lying around) with this relaxing indoor rainbow generator.
Philips Ambilight technology has been around for a few years now, providing flat-panel televisions with color-enhanced ambient backlighting. While placing lights behind of television screens has long been known to improve perceived contrast ratios and decrease eyestrain, Ambilight’s color-cycling was always a bit more superflous in my opinion.
Electronic artist blinkybug has created this series of wall art pieces that use a set of loosely arranged LEDs to form some cool abstract works of art.
The artist places LEDs and circuitry behind a translucent canvas to create a constantly-evolving display of abstract colored light.
I really dig the clean modern styling of this bedside alarm clock from DesignEon. The cool thing about it is that there’s a built-in light that casts a dramatic glow from beneath the clock.
The clock comes in two styles, one with green LEDs and a green acrylic case, and the other one comes with orange LEDs and a clear acrylic case.
While they might be a bit “new-agey” for my taste, I think these LED light murals are still pretty cool.
Perhaps better suited for nightclubs or restaurants than for your home, these Light Energy Paintings can fill a wall with a dazzling show of colored light.
This unique men’s wristwatch conceals a little secret beneath its traditional mechanical face. When you press a button on the side of the watch, a hidden LED display reveals itself.

Some guys from a theatrical lighting supplier decided to crank up their fancy LED light curtain with a little round of Atari’s classic 1970’s arcade game, PONG.
The light curtains create a digital grid using thousands of individual LEDs.
SolidAlliance, makers of wacky things like USB drives that look like sushi and other edibles, has just revealed their latest creation.
The Tengu is an interactive device that displays an animated face using an array of LEDs.
When I think of LED watches, I usually visualize some segmented or dot-matrix red display and a sleek modern design. These watches from Salvatore Marra put a slightly different spin on LED illumination.
These watches feature a traditional analog quartz movement, but illuminate the dial with colored LEDs.
