10 Ridiculous Light Bulbs You Have to See to Believe

Genius is subjective, but there is no doubt that these are some of the borderline craziest, most imaginative lights we’ve ever seen. In fact, we might be purchasing a few to spice up our office. We won’t be surprised if you do too! We spent a bit of time pondering just how some of these lights were devised. Here’s what we came up with. Let us know if you can do better!

This little gem is sure to have passers by doing a double-take. We think that it was inspired by an affinity for magic, but it might just be this:

Do you hate those little flashlights that weigh down your keychain? You know, the ones that you have to hold down the tiny button on to keep the light going. We hate them too. That’s part of the reason we love this little bright idea.

We admit it. When Tetris first came out, we were addicts. Now that we’re a bona fide success, we can indulge our childhood cravings. And who wouldn’t crave this.

There are a hundred places that this lamp can work. We’re contemplating buying four or five and building a little Russian castle!

What happens when you have high society taste? This does:

You won’t find these bulbs hanging out just anywhere, though. They may not be made of real diamond, but the way they’re priced you wouldn’t know it.

Ok, when we first saw these light bulbs there were no words. The only thing that came to mind was this:

The good news (or bad news depending on if you like them or not) is that these are a one of a kind project by artist Pieke Bergmans. He’s done several variations on this theme that you can find here.

What if we told you we found a really brainy compact fluorescent light bulb? Seriously. This bulb is one of the brightest things we’ve seen in a while. So

This last one is a little nod to all of you who secretly wonder what would happen if Miley Cyrus left her life as a pop icon to run her own business. Here’s what we think might happen.
