Now that a trio of red, blue, and green LEDs can reproduce almost any color you can imagine, tinted mood lighting has become a hot trend. But why settle for manually dialing in a specific shade when this ColorUp lamp includes a built-in color picker that can sample and reproduce any color you so desire?

The lamp itself looks like an over-sized light bulb, but instead of frosted glass it's made from soft squishy silicon, and selecting a new color simply requires the user to give it a little squeeze.

The lamp has been in development for a couple of years now, but the folks at PEGA Design & Engineering believe they've finally found the perfect balance between size, brightness, and battery life. And while specific details about pricing and availability haven't been revealed just yet, the ColorUp lamp will supposedly be available before the year's out, and hopefully before you get your holiday shopping done.
