Some marketers will never understand the meaning of "enough." LEDs are everywhere , of course, having gone far beyond computing to everything from umbrellas and license plates to tables and your mouth . Well, not your mouth, necessarily.

So naturally, some brilliant designer (unintentional pun) had to come up with the "Illuminated Handbag" too. At first glance, we thought it was taken from some footage of a recent volcano eruption or perhaps a studio still from the '50s horror classic The Blob. But nay, it was just an unfortunate attempt at techno-fashion that Red Ferret says was priced at $299--molten lava and alien life forms not included.
