Just because they could – Gem Hsin Topaz lamp/speakers

When is a lamp not a lamp? When it’s a speaker, of course


We’re not sure what sparked the invention of these Gem Hsin Topaz speakers, but we have to admit they look pretty sleek. Available with an optional battery pack, this USB-powered LED desk lamp is more than happy to illuminate your nocturnal keyboard clackering with three levels of brightness.

Naturally the next step in the design process was to shove in some speakers so that some relaxing Mozart arrangements can soothe your last-minute all-night report stressathon. What’s that you say? Your laptop already has speakers? No matter – these ones are in a lamp, and are due to be released this September. Huzzah! Price to be confirmed, however.
