As for the OLED, it's 10cm and just 0.2mm thick. With a maximum power draw of 7 watts, it gives off a light output of 1,000 lux at a color temperature of 2,900 K, and promises to last over 20 years.

The aluminum body is also entirely capacitive. Tap it anywhere to turn the light on, or tap and hold to dim up and down.

On top of that, the base of the Aerelight acts as a wireless phone charger. It's directly compatible with phones like the Nokia Lumia 930 and the Google Nexus 5 -- if you're using an iPhone or a Samsung Galaxy device, you'll need to get a special case for your phone.

The Aerelight is expected to make its debut in early 2015, and is available for preorder now at a price of $240, which converts to slightly less than £150 in the UK. You'll also need to tack on another $20 for shipping in the US, or £30 for shipping to the UK. Unfortunately, the Aerelight is not expected to ship to Australia.
