Crystalcade: Home Arcade Gets Flashy

Crystalcade: Home Arcade Gets Flashy
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.

Luxeed LED Rainbow Keyboard: Disco on Your Desk

Luxeed LED Rainbow Keyboard: Disco on Your Desk
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. Luxeed’s USB keyboards are available in a white backlit version (KRW 118,800 / $127 USD) and a sleek black backlit version (KRW 125,600 / $134 USD), where the keys stay black and only the letters change colors. The keyboards have started to trickle out in their native land of Korea, but hopefully somebody will see fit to import these into the U.S.

Rainbow Brite

Rainbow Brite
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. The Rainbow Stone (which looks more like a clam than a stone to me) uses a set of colored LEDs which are bounced off of a curved mirror to produce an ever-changing rainbow of fruit flavors colors.

Philips Aurea Tv: Ambilight Gets an Overhaul

Philips Aurea Tv: Ambilight Gets an Overhaul
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. The company is now getting set to release a new line of LED backlit televisions called the Aurea series.

Designeon LED Clock and Light Combo

Designeon LED Clock and Light Combo
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.

Painting With Light

Painting With Light
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.

LED Clock Mocks Nixie

This clock looks quite a bit like those retro Nixie tube clocks, but instead of old vacuum tubes, it uses modern LED technology to achieve a similar result. B&W’s Tubes Clock features six independent segmented red LEDs encased in little smoked domes.

Playing Pong on a 500 Square Foot Display
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.

Salvatore Marra LED Watches Flash With Color

Salvatore Marra LED Watches Flash With Color
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.

Long before the recent trend of strange digital timepieces that tell time in binary or in some other cryptic fashion, a little electronics company known as Heathkit made this fun LED clock that told time using Roman numerals. Back in the late 1980’s this Roman numeral digital clock sold for about $169 through the Heathkit catalog.
