The Lumio looks like a hardcover book, but open it up and you’ve got a sculptural LED light. This compact form makes it easy to take with you, especially as its pleated interior is made of water-resistant Tyvek, so it can even venture outdoors for backyard barbecues or short camping trips. I received a Lumio recently to see it up close (and made a little video) and I was quite impressed with the overall quality- plus, there are so many lighting options you can really put it anywhere. Hang it, lay it on its side or back, or attach it to any metal surface. More info below, or take a look at Lumio’s gallery for more pics.
