Ikea's LED Strips Automatically Illuminate the Deepest Darkest Drawers

Whether you get ready for work at some impossibly early hour before the sun rises, or you live in a cheap windowless basement apartment, Ikea's new Dioder strip lights will bring some much needed illumination to drawers, cupboards, and closets.

To maximize the battery life of the $15 Dioder's six AAAs, the LEDs automatically illuminate for 15 seconds when a door or drawer is opened and an IR sensor is activated, and automatically turn off after five seconds in the dark. Mounting is as simple as attaching a couple of screws, or just relying on a set of adhesive pads, and once in place you'll never accidentally grab your dark blue socks instead of the black pair again.
