Solar light works like snail's eyes

Articulated stems creep us out.

Hammacher Schlemmer

Being of the green ilk here at Crave, we fully support the notion of solar lighting (especially if it keeps out co-workers from exhibiting any violent tendencies ). We're even willing to tolerate models born of questionable taste . But we must draw the line at gadgets that resemble killer mollusks .

The "Place-Anywhere Articulated Solar Light" may sound innocuous enough, but don't be fooled. By its own admission, this product bears "two independent telescoping stalks, similar to a snail's ommatophores." That would be snail eyes, as every schoolboy knows. Whatever they're called, they can swivel around 360 degrees to shine their LED lights in any direction, whether mounted on a wall, the ground or even a ceiling if you really want to be creeped out.

There is one good thing about it, though. It can be controlled by a remote up to 50 feet away, so you can scare your friends to death.
