An LED Clothespin Makes For a Brilliant Book LightS

Despite the advent of machines designed specifically for drying clothes, the lowly clothespin has still found a way to stay relevant and useful to us after all these years. And with the addition of a simple LED bulb, it looks like clothespins will remain useful for many years to come.

The obvious use for this $8 upgraded laundry accessory is as a book light for when you find yourself caught up in a page turner late into the night. And it should work just fine with either an old-school paper tome, or an older generation backlight-less ebook reader. But since it can 'pinned' almost anywhere, it also makes for an easy-to-use hands-free flashlight, nightlight, or even emergency light, depending on what situation arises. [Fancy]
