From the same dudes behind the gadget bacteria-killing PhoneSoap, the LumaLamp runs circles around straight-up tabletop lighting. Available in a variety of shapes and sizes, it's a seriously multi-tasker. It'll charge your devices, change color based on your mood, serve as a natural light (and sound) alarm, blink to announce phone notifications, and can even be used as a speakerphone.
