If you missed the successful Kickstarter campaign, you’ll just have to suck it up and pay the regular retail price. Don’t worry, though, it’ll be worth it. The Lumio looks like an elegant hardcover book, but open it up and you’ve got a sculptural LED light. This compact form makes it easy to take with you, plus, its pleated interior is made of water-resistant Tyvek, so it can even venture outdoors for backyard barbecues or short camping trips. A rechargeable battery provides wireless power for up to eight hours.
