LED mirror isn't as bad as it sounds

Unlike lighted handbags, it actually looks good

LEDs are beginning to rival Swarovski crystals as overused (and unnecessary) accents for all manner of products--even handbags . They appear so often that we could even start a daily feature on them.

So for today's installment of Crave, The LED Edition, we be bring you into the home. The "Diamond Lite" mirror, from the UK's BC Designs, is a backlit, splash-proof accessory punctuated with small diamond-shaped LED clusters. But, unlike so the garish designs of so many other items we've seen, this one is actually done in a tasteful manner, as Gadget Candy says. Then again, considering the competition where LED aesthetics are concerned, it's not hard to look good.
