The Glow Brick is touted as a "cordless nightlight" - a clever way of saying it's not really a light, but a glow-in-the-dark box instead. Powered by magical glow matter called "phosphorescence", the Glow Brick charges from a lamp or sunlight and can provide up to three hours of glowy goodness. That's probably not enough to get you through the 3:30am trips to the bathroom, so you may be forced to go earlier or invest in a plastic bottle.

What we like most, however, is that designers encased a real light bulb in the block of acrylic– like you've trapped a great idea, and now it's your bitch 3 hours a night.
