By now our smartphones have become a constant bedside companion for most of us. But Shay Alkalay and Yael Mer over at the London-based Raw Edges Design Studio have come up with a way to make them more than just an alarm clock replacement. They've created a series of very clever concept docks that turn your smartphone's flash into a bedside lamp while it's charging.

Since they were only just unveiled at London Design Week, no one's stepped up to put these creations into production just yet. But fortunately every single design is made from scavenged materials like paper cups, tree branches, and even suction cups—so you should easily be able to just build your own. And the last ingredient would be an app that lets your smartphone's LED flash stay on indefinitely. Just don't over do it, since there's a reason Apple doesn't promote the iPhone as a portable bedside lamp. [Raw Edges Design Studio via designboom]
