LUME Lets You Ground Coffee Beans In The Wild And It Is Also A Camp Light Too

If you think making freshly brewed coffee when out in the great wilderness isn’t enough for you, then I supposed you are in need of LUME. LUME is a soon-to-be-launched portable coffee grinder that will, you guessed it, let you grind your favorite coffee beans when you are out and about. Basically, it takes coffee enjoyment in the wild a step up. Not only you can say adios to instant coffee but also bid farewell to not-so-fresh and irregular ground coffee.

Floating Cloud Lamp Silently Kicks Up A Storm On Your Desk With Lights

Designer Richard Clarkson is known for a lot artsy stuff, but nothing from his portfolio stood out more than his cloud sculptures. You see, Richard here is kind of like X-Men’s Storm. He can whip up quite a storm. Granted, he won’t do damages like Ororo Munroe does when she is really pissed. His is a different kind of storm, or should we say, his work of art has an element of a storm. Clarkson’s much talked about cloud has seen it being transformed into a ceiling light, a super cool Bluetooth speaker and now, it has come to your desktop as a desk lamp.

Seletti Banana Lamp Gives Us Another Reason To Love Bananas

Everyone like banana for different reasons. Some love it because it is loaded with vitamins, some love it as a fruit and then there are some who love it because it brightens their day. Ok. Maybe regular, organic bananas can’t light up the dark (if it can, don’t ever eat it!), but the Seletti Banana Lamp designed by Belgium-based Studio Job certainly can. At a glance, it looks like a real banana, half-peeled and coated in luxurious gold, but it is really a desk lamp. Continue reading Seletti Banana Lamp Gives Us Another Reason To Love Bananas

Ingo Maurer’s Inflatable Light Is Just About As Unique As A Light Can Gets

What is inflatable, produces light and can be used at home or camping? Ok, I will save you the hassle of guessing. It is called Blow Me Up. No. No. Don’t get it wrong. There’s nothing NSFW about Blow Me Up. It is actually a light and an inflatable one. Wait, what? Inflatable light? Yes. Inflatable light. Now, the concept of inflatable light isn’t all that new. There is at least one we knew (and it is awesome, btw), but the Blow Me Up by German industrial designer Ingo Maurer is little more playful in a way. It is a 6-foot long LED-powered lamp but it comes packed, rolled inside a can in its deflated state. Upon unboxing, user will have to inflate manually by hand to get it to its intended, hence the name Blow Me Up. Although, technically, it doesn’t actually inflate using your mouth.

Thanks To Amazon Alexa-enabled C by GE Sol, You Can Now Talk To Your Light

So, now, GE thinks that we may not fancy talking to a black cylinder and decide to bring Amazon digital talking assistant into lightings too, starting with the C by GE Sol. C by GE Sol is the industry’s first Amazon Alexa-enabled lighting that allows you to do a variety of things through Alexa, like ordering your dinner, check out the latest news headlines, play music et cetera. In addition, it is a smart clock that, instead of traditional hands, it uses visual indicators such as putting illumination around the Sol’s ring where the clock hands would normally be. Continue reading Thanks To Amazon Alexa-enabled C by GE Sol, You Can Now Talk To Your Light

Heng Balance Lamp Has Magnet-embedded Suspending Balls As Switch

At a glance, you may mistaken the Heng Balance Lamp to be a Dyson fan with a couple of balls suspended right smack in the center. Of course, this is not a fan, nor was it from Dyson. In fact, Heng is a light. It is a desk lamp that’s designed to break the monotony of today’s, how do you say? Traditional way of switching on and off a lamp. Wait, what? Really. That’s what Netherlands-based Arther Limpens from Allocacoc DesignNest is proposing and breaking the traditional Heng did. How? You see the two balls there? They are not just beautifully crafted wooden balls; in each of them is a magnet that enables the two to magically suspended in midair. Continue reading Heng Balance Lamp Has Magnet-embedded Suspending Balls As Switch

Aplomb XL Concrete Hanging Light: Concrete Can Be This Classy?

Concrete is a material which you either love it or hate it. However you may loath the look of concrete, it is part our life and a thing you have to learn to live with, but for those who love it as much as we do, then you will be glad that this world is not lacking of all things concrete.

WySky: It Is A LED Lamp, A Speaker And An iPhone Dock Rolled Into One

The birth of crowdfunding platforms give raise to a world of innovations that you probably never thought you need. The WySky Apple-integrated Music Lamp is one such example. From the product name, it is easy to dismiss WySky as just another gimmicky dock, or a desk lamp, but rest assure that it is more than that. This futuristic-looking lamp is actually an adjustable LED light with over 16 million color, a full-range speaker, and an iPhone/iPad dock rolled into one. Continue reading WySky: It Is A LED Lamp, A Speaker And An iPhone Dock Rolled Into One

Paper-Concrete Composite Looks Like Concrete But Without The Heft

I am not going to lie. I have this special affinity for concrete. The industrial flavor projected by any concrete object is, to me, very calm and zen-ish. But this kind of cool is not for everyone, partly, anything that you can think of, if made by concrete would be impractical as the object would be heavy and brittle. However, those cons would be non-issue for the Dome Lamp created by Budapest-based artist Rita Koralevics. Simply called Dome+ lamps with bamboo, it looks like they are made out of concrete, but they are not the concrete you imagined.

Star Trek Enterprise 3D Deco Lamp Puts Realistic ‘Hologram’ In Your Home

Sci-fi books and films have opened our eyes to many drool worthy future tech. Sadly, not every one of those fantasy tech becomes a reality. Hologram is one of them. The hologram here we are referring to is real projection of a 3D object in wireframe or similar, not the sticker kind of hologram you in toys, or those projected inside a glass block. Star Trek Automated Repair Station, for example, had one and now, even though consumer hologram isn’t available to you, you can have one in your room, on your bedside table too. And the object that will replicate the hologram projection look is this Disco Star Trek USS Enterprise 3D Deco Lamp.
