Lamps that Use Your iPhone’s Flash as a Light

iphone lamp
This may not be the best idea in practice but conceptually it’s pretty neat- a bedside iPhone dock that looks like a lamp and uses your iPhone’s camera flash as the light. Designed by Shay Alkalay and Yael Mer of Raw Edges Design this concept looks great but it’s actually a pretty awkward way to be a lamp. (not as awkward as the phrase “to be a lamp” but awkward nonetheless). Interesting concept though. (via gizmodo)
