Darth Vader lightsaber flashlight

Posted in Star Wars by Conner Flynn on July 18th, 2009

Darth Vader lightsaber flashlightThe lightsaber has taken many merchandising forms, but this one may be the most practical. This one is Vader’s flashlight stuffed with four bright LED bulbs and authentic sound effects. Sure it won’t slice anyone in half, but it will help you use the force to navigate through darkness.

It measures about 9.5 inches in length and is powered by 3 AAA batteries. So if a nerd gets lost in the dark, you’ll see them coming, swinging away and quoting the movies.

Eee lights up when you get a message

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

Eee lights up when you get a messageSure, lights on your notebook are nothing new, but they don’t really do anything useful. This mod, on the other hand, puts a 3-color LED on an Asus Eee 901 that shows you when you have incoming messages. All it takes is an extra microprocessor and some custom scripts.

The RGB LED displays a different color depending on whether it’s email, an IM or a tweet. We can only hope that this opens up the eyes of product designers. It would be nice to see something like this on an HP, Acer or Dell.

Samsung XL2370 Finger-Slim LED monitor

Posted in Samsung by Conner Flynn on July 6th, 2009

Samsung XL2370 Finger-Slim LED monitorThe Samsung XL2370 boasts what Samsung calls a “finger-slim” design, with high-end features like a 2ms response time and 1080p resolution (1920×1080 pixels) as well as a 40% power savings. Samsung is calling it eco-friendly because it is lighter to transport and should require less materials to produce.

How well those claims work in the real world, we aren’t sure. This monitor will come out in Korea this month, then will make its way to the rest of the world at some point. No word if the US is on their list yet.

LED clock eats bugs and converts them into energy

Posted in Clocks by Conner Flynn on June 29th, 2009

LED clock eats bugs and converts them into energyThis LED clock from British designers Jimmy Loizeau and James Auger is a morbid flycatcher and a timepiece in one. Think of it like a clock with spider sensibilities. It harvests insects on a sticky roller that’s covered in flypaper, then drops the corpses into a microbial fuel cell.

The dead bug is digested by the bacteria inside, and the chemical changes power the clock. Pretty neat and disgusting.

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.

Dillyeo Deal: Sound Activated EQ T-Shirt

Posted in Dillyeo Daily Deal by dillyeo on May 26th, 2009


I’m sure everyone’s heard of this, the good ol’ Sound Activated LED Equalizer T-shirt. For those that have are out of the loop (don’t worry, it happens to us all sometimes), all you have to do is put this on your body, and music makes it lose control. Well, pending that you have 4 “AAA” batteries, that is.
This shirt is not for doing homework in, though. Unless by “homework” you mean gettin’ super duper crunk. The LEDs on the panel respond to particular frequencies (primarily bass hits), so it’s not exactly the most versatile equalizer. But I think that feature makes it more interesting, as when there are dramatic pauses in percussion, they are matched by the LEDs on the shirt. It’s hard to find this shirt for under 20-30 bucks, so I hope you appreciate that today Dillyeo is offering it for 15$, after shipping.

The Samsung PAVV 8000 series will be available in 46 and 55 inch and will be available in the US in May as well as Europe and Southeast Asia. Sadly, the specs for the PAVV 7000 and 6000 series are still unavailable. They must not be all that awesome.

Battery Snaps turn batteries into an LED flashlight

Posted in Flashlights by Conner Flynn on April 20th, 2009

Battery Snaps turn batteries into an LED flashlightBattery Snaps are an interesting little gadget that turns a regular 9volt battery into a single-LED flashlight, by snapping onto the top. Just snap it on and use the button on top to turn on the LED light. Instant flashlight.

When the LED light stops working, that’s when it’s time to replace the battery. For $5, it comes with a 9 volt battery included. It isn’t going to light up a whole room or anything, but these would be handy to have for power outages.

Kenwood SP0001 transparent speakers

Posted in Speakers by Conner Flynn on April 18th, 2009

Kenwood SP0001 transparent speakersLooking for a pair of speakers to impress your friends with? These Kenwood SP0001 transparent speakers should do the trick. Maybe. I’m not sure. They’re cool, but something about them is very washer/dryer like. If you like transparent washers/dryers then this is gold.

They must look better than they sound however, with a disappointing 10Wx2ch, with 8Ω power, yet costing €765. It comes with a matching pair of stands with white and blue LEDs.

LED Dragonfly streetlamp with a built in camera

Posted in LED by Conner Flynn on April 16th, 2009

LED Dragonfly streetlamp with a built in cameraWhen was the last time you saw a streetlamp as unique as this one? It’s cool just the way it is, but when you realize that all four wings have LEDs in them, you see it’s true potential. Not just as art, but as a crime prevention tool as well thanks to an attached camera.

It lights up the night streets and keeps a watchful eye on those below. There’s also a sea gull and butterfly as well. They were developed by a Korean company and can be found across Seoul and soon in Tokyo as well.

A mouse with a message

Posted in Mouse by Conner Flynn on April 9th, 2009

USB Airflow Mouse with LED messagingYou might remember, we told you about the LED message mouse last October. But since all of the other kids are slinging it around the net, we just wanted to brag and say we covered it back then. It’s a standard USB mouse, with some extra special features.

It can also display messages with the built in LED display. Up to 12 characters, and it also has a built in fan to keep your hands nice and cool if you have sweaty palms. I don’t wanna know why. I’m just saying.
