Digital Photo Frame Lamp sheds some light on your photos

Posted in digital photo frame by Conner Flynn on October 10th, 2010

Digital picture frames just got a little crazier. Behold the Digital Photo Frame Lamp. A photo frame with a lamp attached. The long lasting, super bright LED lamp comes with an adjustable neck and an LCD screen for viewing your vacation images and whatnot.

The 3.5-Inch hi-resolution digital display features a 320 x 240 resolution with slide show function. It can hold over 1000 images. There’s also a digital clock, a calendar and a memory card.

Lightsaber wall lamps will geek up any room

Posted in Star Wars by Conner Flynn on July 26th, 2010

Look, we all love Lightsabers and we all need some light in our man-caves. This is the perfect geek way to light any room as if it were a Jedi temple. Each wall-mountable light measures 27-inches tall, and has LEDs inside the lightsaber blade which produce seven colorful effects.

Each light includes a remote control, because let’s face it, Jedi powers don’t come easy. They run on 5 AAA batteries, but since they use LEDs, they should last for a long time before they need changing.

Recycled iMac G4 Lamp

Posted in Lamps by Conner Flynn on February 10th, 2010

Just a few days ago we showed you the Recycled Apple iBook G4 Clock. Now we have a Recycled iMac G4 Lamp to go along with it, made from recycled Mac parts. It makes quite a geek statement.

The Recycled iMac G4 Lamp was made from the base of an iMac G4 that had died, but as you can see it was given new life. You better hurry if you want one as there is only one available. It’s just $125 from Etsy. Totally worth it if you are an Apple fanboy.

Artopz Minitopz nettop lamp

Posted in Computers by Conner Flynn on December 20th, 2009

Artopz Minitopz nettop lampChances are if you want a nettop it’s because they are a cheap. The folks at Artopz don’t seem to understand this concept since the Artopz Minitopz is priced at $2,375. It features an Intel dual-core Atom processor, NVIDIA ION graphics, Wi-Fi, 4GB of RAM, 500GB hard drive, DVD burner, HDMI output and Windows 7, plus an artsy fartsy design.

For those extra dollars you get a functioning lamp and the company says the LED light is the equivalent of a 20 watt light bulb. A very expensive 20 watt bulb.

DIY Batsignal

Posted in DIY by Conner Flynn on December 8th, 2009

DIY BatsignalYou know I thought about making this DIY batsignal, but then decided against it. I mean, Batman is really good about showing up whenever you light this thing up, but then when you start talking and turn your back, he always disappears. That’s just not cool. In fact, it’s rude.

But if you don’t mind his disappearing act, you can try your hand at it. You can find all the details for this Batsignal projector at Thingiverse. If you want to call another hero, you can even switch out the stencils.

Robotic lighting: Robolamps

Posted in Lamps by Conner Flynn on November 17th, 2009

Robotic lighting: RobolampsCheck out these Robolamps from Croatian artist Robert Matysiak. They are all kinds of awesome and I want one now. They’re made from plumbing supplies and green or yellow light bulbs, which is probably what gives them their unique look.

Sadly they aren’t available to the public just yet. That’s a real shame because geeks like me would clean them out. They’re robots. They’re lamps. Enough said.

Animated musical Starship Enterprise Lamp

Posted in Sci-Fi by Conner Flynn on November 15th, 2009

Animated musical Starship Enterprise LampThis musical Star Trek Enterprise lamp is superior to this one in almost every way. It says Star Trek, is actually from Star Trek and the Enterprise looks just like it should.

This one has a button at the base that will automatically turn the Star Trek theme song on. Don’t everybody all nerdgasm at once, but there’s more. That music is accompanied by a spoken prologue as the Enterprise on the base spins.


“Star Ship” Chandelier

"Star Ship" ChandelierCheck out this “Star Ship” Chandelier that boldly goes where no lighting has gone before…while skirting copyright and licensing issues by offering up a generic chrome finished and terrible re-imagining of the Enterprise.

The back looks like it came from the original Klingon ships, while the front is very much like the Enterprise’s saucer section reinforced with Erector set parts. It’s still pretty cool though and would fit into any geek home nicely.

LED lamp powered by the telephone jack

Posted in Lamps by Conner Flynn on November 8th, 2009

LED lamp powered by the telephone jackHere’s something you don’t see everyday. This eco-friendly LED lamp gets it’s power directly from the socket that usually connects to your land line phone. The lamp has 8 LEDs bright enough to serve your needs, whatever they may be.

The best part is that it won’t increase your electricity bill. Yes it looks like a piece of cheap plastic crap and it is, costing only $4.70, but hey it’s powered by your phone jack. That’s good enough for us.

Alien Abduction Lamp released

Posted in Lamps by Conner Flynn on October 20th, 2009

Alien Abduction Lamp releasedThis lamp has been a long time coming and we’ve been waiting patiently for our chance to see cows in mid-abduction. It has finally gone from prototype to reality. You gotta love the aliens peering out of the UFO windows.

This final version of the lamp features LEDs that light up the alien cockpit, and a steel retro spacecraft over an illuminated tractor beam. You can have the light always on or a pulse lighting effect behind the windows. When you turn the lights off, the aliens glow in the dark.

Time Your Light concept

Posted in Concepts by Conner Flynn on August 2nd, 2009

Time Your Light conceptWhen the apocalypse comes. Not if, but when, you are going to want a reliable light. Your home will have no power by which to defend yourself from robots or zombies. You’ll want the Time Your Light concept.

It gets its power mechanically, working like a windup doll. Just give it a twist and you have light. But is this just a timer with a light or a light with a timer? We just hope it doesn’t tick and give you away with typical wind up noise.


Cassette tape lamps

Posted in Lamps by Conner Flynn on July 28th, 2009

Cassette tape lampWe all have a special place in our hearts for the Cassette tape, despite the fact that we would never EVER go back to using them. Remember what a pain it was to rewind and fast forward? Bottom line: Cassette tapes make better lamps.

And these lamps pump me so full of nostalgia that they have fast forwarded my heart, ejected it from my chest, flipped it over to the B side and made it start beating again. We want one real bad.

Nessie lamp spotted in the wild

Posted in Lamps by Conner Flynn on June 21st, 2009

Nessie lamp spotted in the wildThis LED Nessie Table Lamp was recently spotted. Skeptics will tell you that it doesn’t exist, but the picture is proof enough for me. It’s completely posable and you can point it in just about any way you want. It runs on 4 AA batteries so you can take it with you anywhere or give it to the kids as a night-light to install terror in them.

Just squeeze its head to turn it on or to switch on the multicoloured LEDs. It also comes in a range of patterns, including the rare leopard print Nessie. Only $34.85. It has a price, which is proof that it exists.

VHS Lamp: It’s like your favorite Trek episodes are holding a light bulb

Posted in Lamps by Conner Flynn on May 10th, 2009

VHS LampI knew there was a use for all of those old VHS tapes in the closet. Seven, count ’em, seven VHS tapes are holding up this light bulb. Whether it’s old Sanford and Son shows or Star Trek the Next Generation, old television is the new way to light your home.

As the creator points out, the lamp is designed to be used with a CFL (compact flourescent) bulb ONLY. A standard bulb might get too hot and melt your VHS tapes. There’s nothing worse than a mound of melted tape. Trust me on that one. Goes well with the VHS toaster.

Alien Abduction lamp

Posted in Lamps by Conner Flynn on March 8th, 2009

Alien Abduction lampThere are few things cooler or more awesome than seeing a cow being lifted into a flying saucer. Though the cow may disagree. Haven’t witnessed this with your own eyes in the night sky? Here’s the next best thing.

The antenna on top is the on/off switch. It comes in a plain version with just the saucer and light ray and you can also get the more humorous cow abducting edition. The Alien Abduction Lamp is in the functional prototype stage and not yet available, sadly. Hopefully soon as I know the creator has been at it for some time.
