Have a future astronaut at home? Or maybe you just like the, um, “comfort” of a little extra moonlight in the room with you at night? Check out Moon In My Room, a remote controlled nightlight with a detailed lunarscape that displays 12 phases of the moon. The light sensor makes sure that there’s always a little moonlight around, and the three hanging angles make sure that your view is perfect. Included with your purchase are lunar phase calendar and an audio CD with a lesson in moon-ology and space. The lamp measures 10” in diameter and requires 4 AA and 2 AAA batteries (we’re guessing the AAAs are for the remote).
After years of abuse, the common light bulb is now getting its just rewards. No more hiding under lampshades for this bulb. It stands proudly and exclaims, “I am the focal point here.” Okay, we are pushing it a bit, but we appreciate the creativity that has gone into the LampLamp. The E25/E27 bulb is 30 W, is available in 110 or 220 V, and is a mere $28.00. You can keep the shade for that next New Year’s Eve get together.

We’ve seen all kinds of alarm clocks, FM radios, lamps, iPod docks, and jukeboxes in our comings and goings. But have you ever seen anything that combines all of these into one? Well now you have, courtesy of Brookstone. This 1950s-motif-ed contraption even lights up when turned on, instantly making it the
centerpiece of whatever room it’s in. Perfect for the person who really has everything. Available for $99 USD.
Made from an actual light bulb, the Glow Brick collects energy from the sun by day and lights up your night. Each one is 3.3 x 3.3 x 5-inches, large enough to keep you completely out of the dark by glowing. The effect takes place when a small space between the container’s light bulb glass and acrylic resin shrinks during production. The photoluminescent lamp is available for $29.95. We applaud the idea that we can have a night light and conserve energy without really trying.

Designer Yuko Taguchi has created a lamp that looks like a joke, but in fact serves a purpose. Her Wind Up Lamp does just that as the key is both a switch and a timer. It runs by a spring-driven generator which produces enough power to turn on the bulb. Once it winds down, the light goes out. Although only a prototype, Yuko says that this would be a terrific device for those who read in bed but fall asleep before switching their lamps off. We also think this would definitely be a viable green alternative to current electric night lights.
