Mathmos Eclipse Lights Won't Fry your Retinas

When I was in first grade there was a solar eclipse that we could see here in the States. I recall to this day my teacher shrieking “Don’t Look at it or you’ll go blind!”, which is ironically very similar to another threat I heard frequently that had to do with going blind, but I digress.

If you have always harbored a inner need to stare at an eclipse without going blind Mathmos has a pair of Eclipse Lights that won’t fry your retinas. Each light uses LEDs to create the effects you see and the lights will come in and out of view as you move around the globe. Two colors are available a red called solar and a blue called Lunar. Each light sells for $69.99 and measures 5” x 5” x 5” and includes the 120V power adapter. There is no pesky switch to mess with to turn these on and off, you simply press down on the globe. That should be a nice touch for those of you who remember the 60’s a bit too much.
