Blinklums offers a creative lighting outlet, can’t escape a household one.

BlinklumsImagine being able to have a light source in any shape that your heart desires. Blinklums is a lighting system that uses a special chemical formulation to create a sheet of light that is bendable, resistant to water and shock, has a long life and gives off very little heat. A few creative ideas include illuminated mouse pad, posters, and sketch board, to name just a few. The main drawback is that it takes more than just an AC wall outlet for it to give off the equivalent of about 60 watts of light, but an inverter takes care of that, and a battery pack is in the works. For £23, a backer gets one product with an anticipated delivery of June 2014.
