Glow Brick

Get things glowing with this modern take on the classic night light.

$40.00

Inner Glow

A light bulb hangs suspended in this clear acrylic brick and requires no electricity to cast off that signature glow-in-the-dark green light. The bulb is real, but the designers modified it with glow-in-the-dark material so that it sucks up light during the day and gives off a subtle glow at night. Made by a UK design collective, the Glow Bricks are a playfully modern way to add atmosphere. Made in China.

Made from
acrylic
Measurements

Notes

This is a perfect gift for my son who likes to think creatively and to have "curios" which raise his own curiosity and that of others who visit his home. I will give to him for his birthday (in January), but from what I can see of this item, it will provide enough light like a 'night light' (practical), but also has artistic value and an intriguing, modern design which will stimulate interesting conversation. Great!

Concept better than actual product

Looks great in the online picture and sounds like a cool gadget. But, actual light output is like a dull glow and does not last long enough. I'm not one to move it...Read complete review

Looks great in the online picture and sounds like a cool gadget. But, actual light output is like a dull glow and does not last long enough. I'm not one to move it into the sunlight everyday and then return to the bedside at night - that *might* help, but then it just becomes another chore rather than something to enjoy effortlessly.

      I don't have one but, if you have ever had anything that glows in the dark you would know that things only glow a short time. I am on a fixed income and have a handicap and unable to work, if had the extra $$$$ I would buy it for my home. Inventor keep up the good work. Does everyone buy things without reading reviews! They offer your money back. People are strange, wait wasn't that a line in an old song? LOL, if you want it to stay on it would have a plug and would not be glow in the dark!

          Comments about UncommonGoods Glow Brick:

          As any Glow-in-the-dark object, this bulb glows after removing light from it for a few minutes - then fades. That's what that stuff does. I love it as-is. However, I did add a small base with LED underneath so that it really glows 24x7. There are a number of LED "display" bases - some rotate - for displaying crystal objects, but they work great for this cube.

                I Loved the idea & the picture. Mine was left outside by UPS in -10degree weather for parat of the day. Maybe had something to do with it not working at all.

                Not nearly as cool as I thought it would be. Very small. Needs lots of light to glow brightly in the dark. Awesome idea, but was a little let down by the actual product.

                  I agree with most of the reviews about this product, that it does not retain the illumination for very long, however, it is a pretty cool looking novelty item.

                    We are very dissappointed with its illumination. Sure it's an artsy fartsy piece and a great conversation piece, too. But after a day in the sunlight to "charge up", I'm very disappointed in it's performance. It glows very dimly for a very short time.
