Aren’t chameleons just lovable? Actually it depends on the person. Some peeps find them rather ugly. Still, their color shifting ability is legend and has become ingrained in the popular consciousness. Banking on its near-magical powers, the guys behind Huey the Color Copying Chameleon want to color your desk with this lizard lamp.
Huey is illuminated by a couple of LEDS and powered by three AAAs or an AC adapter. Thanks to a top secret optical sensor, Huey can ‘read’ the color of the surface it’s on and adjust accordingly.
Here’s a good chunk of helpful text from the product page:
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 and ThinkGeek is proud to assist you in your noble quest.
Huey the Color Copying Chameleon Lamp is now on sale at ThinkGeek for $29.99.
