Peg lamp lets us spend less time screwing in light bulbs, more time talking about them (video)

Zach Honig

We know what you're thinking, but the Jolly Green Giant didn't drop something on the way to hang out his laundry. Designed by Steffi Min for her industrial design senior thesis, the Peg lamp looks and functions like an oversized clothespin, directly clipping onto a standard light bulb. As you can see in the video after the break, changing a bulb takes only a second or two, and there's almost no risk of broken glass. We don't expect a clothes pin connector to appear as a retail product anytime soon, but if we can build our own humanoid robots, we can probably find a way to slide an oversized rubber band around two wedges of wood.
