I love useful things that are attractive to look at. Especially when they are unusual. The Clione Mini Speaker USB Lamp fits the bill perfectly. An attractive and unique speaker and lamp all in one.
The Clione looks like a hanging beaker which you would expect foam to pour out of, rather than music, and the glowing aspect wouldn’t surprise me. The whole thing is touch activated. Touch the silver ring and you’ll be able to control the brightness of the lamp. From icy blue all the way to snow blind white. As the lights get low it looks a lot like little flames on the bottom, which adds to the mad scientist effect.
It runs on either USB or three AAA batteries and connects to smartphones and the like through the headphone jack. The speaker only runs for about two hours on a full charge and the light goes for 4-8 hours, so this clearly isn’t an all night device. The Clione is a stylish little lamp/speaker combo that is perfect for rainy nights, and I suggest you sit back with some nice jazz and think about your life while using. The Clione Mini Speaker USB Lamp is $64.
