You won’t blunder around in the dark with the Bed Light! Specifically designed to function only in darkness, the bed light will leave others sleeping undisturbed and save you from fumbling about for a light switch. The Bed Light is installed underneath the bed. When you wake up in the middle of the night, it is activated when your feet hit the floor using motion sensors. It will turn off if there has been no motion detected within a certain amount of time. It can also be installed under countertops, baby cribs, in closets, under cabinets, or under a child’s bed to ward off the boogeyman. It’s available from $56.75 (with 1 motion sensor) to $74.99 (with 2 motion sensors).

For ages 8+ (we're guessing you're in the '+' range), this Rubik's cube ain't yo mama's Rubik's cube. It’s a fully playable, Rubik's cube lamp. Its rechargeable batteries will last up to 2 hours of continuous play, but it can be turned on an off to conserve energy or plugged in via USB. If your Rubik's Cube solving days are over, but you still love the contraption of doom even after all these years (for some reason), you can still keep it as a lamp and admire it from a distance.
