Awesome Glo NightLight from ThinkGeek!

Our master safety ninja Erich Friend sent a link to this great toy from ThinkGeek’s Geek Kids section – the Glo Nightlight with Glowing Balls!  Ok, I’m not 3-7 years old (well, perhaps mentally most days) but I want one of these!  Daphne, when are we getting matching Glo NightLights?!?!?!

Check out this video – the Glo NightLight is about $80 bucks:

GAH!  I’m not supposed to like stuff like this as a 34 year old man, right?!  CRAP!  I want a whole forest floor full of these!!!

From the ThinkGeek product specs:

  • For Ages 2 and Up [SWEET FOR ME!  WOOHOO!]
  • Multi-colored interactive night light
  • Base charges up the balls, which can be removed and placed anywhere
  • No electronics in balls means they don’t get warm and they won’t break
  • Select your favorite color or let the colors circulate
  • Phosphorescent balls glow for up to 30 minutes when out of base
  • Low energy LED base
  • 9v power adapter included
  • BPA-free, Phthalate-free, PVC-free
  • Dimensions: 8.2″ x 8.5″ x 9.8″

ThinkGeek didn’t send me one of these or ask me to write this post.

If Duct Tape Could Slap Your Hand Before You Apply It…

Ok, I know we’ve seen stuff much worse than this in our lifetimes as professionals working with light – but this is pretty stupendously wrong.  My buddy Erich Friend, an engineer, safety consultant, and CEO of Teqniqal Systems writes a blog about Theatre Safety at – you guessed it – the Theatre Safety Blog!  Erich posted the monstrosity below as a quick reminder on what not to do, ever.  Never.

Can you count the things wrong in this picture?
