“WTF, Not What I Thought” Lamp: No, Really… WTF?

Maybe Steve, our French-speaking publisher here at Gearfuse could better answer the question, “Why the fuck do French designers always have to do things bass ackwards? Does it make them feel more ‘artsy?’ Do your berets block your eyesight?

I can’t quite put my finger on it. There is something about these glowing tables that come in a bunch of different colors remind me of my childhood. Maybe they look like something I used to play with often. Perhaps a yo-yo? Ah, yes. Of course. The yo-yo. Dependable and a bitch to rewind. At least they only cost 5 ...

LAPP: Incredible Light Photography from Deutschland

These guys from Germany do time-lapse photography and use light sticks and such to create beautiful images. It’s been awhile since I’ve seen light art as good as LAPP’s. Sprint-Nextel’s commercials last summer were decent but I think the Germans have us Americans beat on the light art. If you want to try your own light art out, grab a ...

The $3 LED Lightbulb

Those brits! Always inventing such crazy stuff like Fawlty Towers and The Office! This time around, researchers at Cambridge University have designed an LED-based lightbulb that costs a mere $3 and has a 100,000 hour lifespan.

Mini Media Centre Case Design Of The 1950s

While this Mini Media Centre designed by British design student Thomas Thomassen looks like the tail light of a ’57 Chevy. Except this thing was actually designed in 2006.
