    These are the $35 Superman and Batman leg lamps available for pre-order from Entertainment Earth. They were loosely modeled after the leg lamp from A Christmas Story and both the lamp and leg light up (the leg is translucent and has its own bulb inside). Cool, but no Catwoman... / Continue →

    This is a chandelier made out of old Nintendo zappers by the folks at online used game/console store JJGames. It's not bad looking. It's maybe not the way I would have arranged the zappers, but I have an eye for shit. GOOD LOOKING SHIT. Still, not bad. Plus I think we can ... / Continue →

    Picture related: frozen light. Zing! NOW COME TEAR MY HEART OUT NO MERCY STYLE. German researchers have successfully "frozen" light for an entire minute, which apparently means great things for the future of "light-based quantum memory" and other things my brain refuses to b... / Continue →

    This is the $40 Han Solo light switch plate hand sculpted and for sale by Etsy seller WickedStudio. And no, the boner isn't a coincidence, they did that on purpose because apparently I'm not the only one who understands fine art. The Force is hard with this one. This is a wor... / Continue →

    This is a series of mannequin lamps by Al-Hamad Design. They're called 'Embarakiya', except I would have called them 'Life of the Party Lamps' but that's just me and I should have gone straight from high school to a successful career in product naming instead of pissing away m... / Continue →

    This is an officially licensed $35 Minecraft torch lamp. The plastic lamps are powered by three AAA batteries and can either sit upright on a table or mounted to a wall diagonally. I just hung a bunch around my bedroom to give it kind of a medieval castle feel. "It's not wor... / Continue →

    Astronomers have announced the discovery of a planet with not one, not two, not three, but FOUR suns. My parents? My parents have two sons -- Frank and I. Frank is the good one. The distant world orbits one pair of stars which have a second stellar pair revolving around t... / Continue →

    This is the Cereal Light by designer ideaka (aka Chris Haines). It looks like a glowing bowl of cereal and turns on and off with a touch of the spoon. Neat! This is just a prototype though, but Chris' website says they're going into production, so they may be available soon.... / Continue →

    This is the Phillips' latest award-winning LED light bulb, a 10-watter that produces the light equivalent (and warm glow) of a 60-watt incandescent and is rated to last 20-years at 4-hours/use a day. Will we even be using light bulbs in 20 years? No, we will not. The world i... / Continue →

    This is an artistically shot video by Jacob Sutton of a guy shredding some fresh pow-pow at night wearing a suit covered in LEDs. That's pretty much it. One thing's for certain though, if brobro keeps this up he might wind up gaining the unwanted attention of some Yetis. And... / Continue →

    Those ankles. $30 LED slippers: so you can find that bit of midnight snack you dropped on your way back from the fridge. And don't even act like they're to prevent stubbing toes because nobody watches their feet while they walk unless they're trying to avoid dog shit or break... / Continue →

    This is a series of (mostly) dinosaur LED drawings by artist Darren Pearson. Obviously Darren has a superhuman sense of spatial awareness because one time at a rave I tried swinging two glowsticks around on shoe strings and ended up putting some dude's eye out and strangling m... / Continue →

    The Nuke Lamp from Veneridesign looks like an atomic mushroom cloud. But fear not, Vault Boy (I'm playing New Vegas right now), it's not. It's just a piece of molded plastic. One that costs $1,500. "WHAT THE SHIT?!" Don't ask me bro, I didn't design it -- I'm just a guy on... / Continue →
