    This is a toddler's Halloween costume made out of a couple strings of LED lights. It makes them look like a little walking stickman. I love the way the kid in the video wobbles around. It's like they don't really have full control of their limbs yet. "THEY'RE A TODDLER." S... / Continue →

    This is a news report from the BBC about scientists tracking snail movement using LEDs taped to their shells. The scientists discovered snails were able to move, on average, about one meter an hour, which I feel like is information we probably already knew. I suspect there wa... / Continue →

    This is the Heineken Ignite bottle coming out in a couple months. It's a regular beer bottle with a plastic base and LED inside that lights up in rythym to music and when you cheers someone or take a sip. You know, because we need beer bottles that do that. Fingers crossed t... / 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 pumpkin carved and lit to play Tetris. You can actually PLAY Tetris on it, using the stem as a joystick. You can read about the whole build process HERE, which was way more complicated than just taping a Game Boy to a pumpkin like I would have done. I dunno, it jus... / Continue →
