Huey the Color Copying Chameleon Lamp

Huey is an electronic glowing chameleon lamp that dynamically matches the color of whatever he sits on. Have a favorite green notebook? Plop Huey down on top and he matches the color with his glowing skin. Just painted your room Cerulean Blue? Hold Huey against the wall, then squeeze him gently and he'll hold the color, even if you put him down on your brown nightstand. Huey even has a color cycle mode if you're indecisive. Watch him pop from color to color and give him a little reassuring squeeze when he gets to the one you like. Huey the Color Copying Chameleon Lamp makes an adorable addition to your wee geeks room, but he's a great friend to anyone who loves color.


How does Huey do it? Well, he lights the surface underneath him with two hidden white LEDs then uses a sophisticated optical sensor to determine the correct color. He then matches this color by adjusting the shade of numerous multi-color LED's imbedded in his body. Huey is truly a toy of the future. Five years ago the color sensing technology he uses was too expensive for consumer products and was featured mainly in scientific measuring devices. Now you can leverage this cool tech for your own frivolous pleasure for as low as 29.99$.

  6. Cool lamp, it'll be cool when they make one that can detect patterns, and changed to mimic say, a checker board.

  10. "leverage this cool tech for your own frivolous pleasure" is right. Seems like a cool gadget to play with in a store or something but not something I'd spend money on personally.

  12. It seem to flicker in the video, but I think that's just because it's out of sync with the camera.
