we are familiar with the classic articulated desk lamps but that kind of look doesn’t necessary appeal to everyone. so, in come the Jake Dyson CDYS LED Task Light that introduced a whole new way of adjusting the position of your light and adding to that, it features “advanced thermal management” system that stretches the lifespan of the bulb to a mind-boggling 37 years or more. the accompanying 8.8W LED light outputs a warm white light that’s easy on your eyes and the lamp functionality is packed with high-tech features such as touch switch, touch sensitive dimming and light level memory. in short, it has both functionality and beauty, well… at least in the industrial design perspective.

vintage cameras turned into awesome night lights

night lights for kids. don’t they just look overly cute or monotonous? even as an adult, i have always wanted to use nightlights but just because of the aforementioned, i didn’t. however, if those nightlights look like Flickr user, Jason Hull (aka Jayfish)’s creation, i would have grab it in a heart beat. what Hull did was, he converts old cameras dating back to the 50s ad 60s into awesome looking nightlights. as much as he love converting those vintage imaging devices into cool nightlights, he refrain from putting cameras that are in pristine condition or rare under the knife, which should give vintage camera enthusiasts a sigh of relief. vintage camera lovers will be glad that he only uses camera that are “lightweight plastic” and those that are produced in quantity which are easily source from the open market.

are hammer and ratchet the most used tools at home or at work? i am inclined to think so when we stumbled upon this hammer-ratchet hybrid tool. our passion for home improvement has our eyes trained on them in an instant and yes, you did not read wrongly, the Wera Koloss Hammer-Ratchet is indeed a hybrid tool combining a drop-forged hammer head with a heavy duty reversible ratchet that features a fine tooth mechanism and a minimal six 6-degree return angle. a “multi-component” Kraftform handle provides you the grip required when you are pounding and ratcheting away.

Glowbar – because sometimes we need to pry in the dark

do you feel the insatiable need to pry in the dark? yes? good, then i have a perfect tool for you: the Glowbar Classic. no. that’s not a typo, in fact, it is very aptly named as this is a Crowbar that glows in the dark. forged from high-carbon steel for extra strength, this wrecking bar is coated with hyper-phosphorescent powder coating that gives it a glow that is said to be “ten times brighter than conventional glow-in-the-dark items.” though i still can’t comprehend why would anyone need a crowbar that glows in the dark. or perhaps, the main purpose of its glow-in-the-dark function is for an easier location of the crowbar in the dark shed? come to think of it, may be all tools should have glow-in-the-dark coating so we can save a lightbulb for the tool shed. no? anyway, the Glowbar Classic cost $79.99 a pop. novelty or functional, you be the judge. another look after the break.

if Anakin Skywalker were to have a candlelight dinner with some chicks from a galaxy, far, far away or Padme Amidala, he would probably use his lightsaber to give the dinner a more romantic ambience. we know the fact that lightsaber isn’t in our checklist, so this Star Wars Lightsaber Candlestick holder should be suffice for us. this solid metal candlestick holder is a precise scaled down re-creation of Lord Vader’s blade casted in zinc-alloy and accented with chrome details. the only let down is the circular plate that might mar the otherwise authentic look but thankfully, it can be unscrewed and ready for battle with any Jedi who attempts to disrupt your sweet candlelight dinner with your beloved Padme.
