Some people over at Drinkstuff (what a ridiculous website name) have decided to bring to you the pinnacle in animal-shaped touch-based lighting technology. Behold, the Man’s Best Friend Light! This bad boy has four legs, features a light bulb, and the ability to be turned on and off by tapping it on the head. It also, apparently, dims when you run your hand from one side of the sensor to the other. I don’t know about you, but I find this product a little depressing (especially at a price point of $150). I’m not allowed to own pets in my
shack in the backyard penthouse apartment, but I’m not about to go out and buy a lamp for companionship. I’m also not about to pet my furnishings in order to receive illumination. I’d be willing to do basically the same work of this lamp, but for much much less. If you hire me, I’ll sit in the corner, and all you have to do is rub me in just the right spot, and I’ll walk over to the switch and turn the lights on for you. I work for free, but keep in mind that I might also steal your silverware when you’re not looking, and I smell like the inside of a meat-processing plant. But hey, if I can save you $150 and the shame of having a dog-shaped lamp companion in your house, I think I look like a pretty solid option. More picture after the jump.
