Betcha can't guess what this blinged out gadget does (pictures)

Yep, it's a smoke detector

Want something a little more high concept staring down at you from the ceiling? German manufacturer Pyrexx has just the thing, with smoke detectors that come in a lot more colors than boring old white. Click through to see what we're talking about.

Black and red

How's that for a more modern smoke detector? You can get this black and bold finish with a brightly colored accent in the middle. If red's not your thing, you've got plenty of other options -- blue, yellow, green, you name it.

White and green

The same goes for models with a white finish.

Pastel shades

If you're turning an old back room into a nursery, why not outfit it with smoke protection in an appropriate pastel shade? Pyrexx offers several, like this lavender model.

Woodgrain pine

They also offer woodgrain models for a more rustic look.

Oak finish

If that pine model is too bright, you could consider this darker oak finish, instead.

Black and shiny

For the truly bold, Pyrexx offers smoke detectors outfitted with Swarovski crystals.

Good as gold

Of course, no line of blinged out smoke detectors would be complete without a model in gold.

A bit more modest

There's also a gold model that comes without the crystals. You know. In case you're feeling humble.

Ceiling camouflage

If you'd rather your smoke detectors blended in than stood out, Pyrexx offers models that camouflage their way into high-profile ceiling prints.

Any shade you like

The Pyrexx PX-1 smoke detector starts at £28 (converts to about $45, AU$60). There's also a model called the PX-1C that adds in Wi-Fi smarts and sells for £83 ($130, AU$170). Pyrexx isn't selling the things in the US just yet, but says that international expansion is in the cards.
