Some might think this LED lamp is scary-looking, but we think it might go well in our mad scientist-themed living room. It was designed a few years ago, and its bill of materials ran upwards of $3700 (which would probably cost much less today), but still. Look at it. It has 504 LEDs, it weighs about 120 pounds, it has two light heads that can be individually controlled, and best of all, it has an Ethernet interface.

This is indeed a design concept, but imagine what you could do with it. It could be controlled via the Internet, showing you red for heavy weather, blue for blue skies ... the possibilities are endless. C'mon, somebody, build this thing, commercialize it, and sell it.
