Forget this lamp--stick to the mood ring

This costs way too much for colored lights

Mood-ring offshoots have become a staple of the retro-tech trend, but this is one of the sillier--and most expensive--examples of the genre we've seen. The "Therapie" is a canvas wall lamp that was "inspired by color and light therapy theories which give it a soothing aura to reverse bad tempers," according to BornRich. To us, it just looks like a plasma TV displaying different colors.

We woudn't mind the idea so much--many of us at Crave have a fondness for the '60s--but the price is downright offensive: $1,100. At that level, you'd be better off buying a real TV that can showcase the work of French impressionists, as well as calming colors.

For basic lighting needs, this bulb looks like a solid pick, but its dimming performance leaves a lot to be desired.
