Show off garden accessories like fountains or light a path through your yard with a solar-powered light that needs neither electricity nor maintenance. Unlike some solar lights that stand out in your landscaping, the 6-Inch Solar Rock Spotlight is embedded in an authentic-looking rock, turning on automatically at dusk to light your way.
The built-in solar panel collects and converts sunlight into DC power every day while the pre-installed rechargeable battery stores the energy to power the light at night. The internal photo sensor turns the super-bright LED lights on automatically when it gets dark and turns them off at dawn. Solar power and LED lights save you money and help preserve the nature… 😉
The price of the Solar Rock Spotlight is $19.99
A PicoCricket is a tiny computer that can make things spin, light up, and play music. You can plug lights, motors, sensors, and other devices into a PicoCricket, then program them to react, interact, and communicate.
For example, you can make a cat and program it to purr when someone pets it. Or you can make a birthday cake and program it to play a song when someone blows out the candles.
The PicoCricket Kit is similar to the LEGO MINDSTORMS robotics kits. MINDSTORMS is designed especially for making robots, while the PicoCricket Kit is designed for making artistic creations with lights, sound, music, and motion.
The price of a single PicoCricket Kit is $250.
After over two years in development, “DeLighTable” is finally available to buy as a commercial product. The real work obviously lies in the pressure sensitive surface, but now it also comes in an attractive casing. With a framework finished in polished stainless steel, DeLighTable has taken the guise of a slim coffee table only twenty five millimeters thick.
Developed as part of an investigation into reactive space, this pressure sensitive surface starts to glow with the slightest touch. It runs on a safe 12 volts, and is completely waterproof. This makes it great for placing transparent glasses with your drinks… The dimensions of the table are 900 x 450 x 300 mm (LxWxH).
The price of the DeLight Table is about $2300.
