It's a Balancing Act

No switch? No problem. Li Zanwen's ingenious lamp turns on and off with a flick of the wrist… and the nudge of a little round magnet. Simply lift the lower sphere to switch the light on: It's attracted to the upper sphere and will stay put in midair, giving off the light you so crave. Once you're feeling like it's time to wind down, just lower the sphere and the light will turn off. It's that easy. And if this doesn't sound high-tech enough for you yet, consider this: It's powered by a standard USB. Hi, future. Made in China.
