IllumiBowl 2.0: A Night Light For Your Toilet

While the concept may sound bizarre, IllumiBowl, the world’s first toilet bowl night light has its share of takers! First introduced on the American TV show Shark Tank barely two years ago, the toilet bowl has since been seen in its second avatar claiming to have introduced new features that only make it better and more convenient to use.

So, how does the IllumiBowl work? Essentially, it is a motion sensor-activated LED light that can be attached to the rim of the toilet bowl, thus eliminating the need to switch on overhead lights as you go, or the requirement of a night light. Powered by 3 AAA batteries, it simply illuminates the inside of the bowl so that you can see in the dark, once it senses movement.  Should the battery go low, a red light indicator will give you a heads-up so that you can go ahead and change them. The user can also control the brightness of the light, with three levels of intensity available, as well as a range of colours (as many as sixteen colour combinations and shades!) that you can choose from. It fits any toilet owing to its flexi-arm for the perfect custom fit, so you don’t have the hassle of having to run through variants to pick the one that will work for you. The makers caution users to not immerse the product in water, or place directly under running water, however!

The price? This is one product that while quirky also won’t burn a hole in your pocket. You can purchase it online for approximately USD 20, with competitive pricing at e-retailers such as Amazon and Walmart.

Jokes aside, the product does exactly what it sets out to do – guide the user without having to face glaring harsh light and save yourself then, from bumping and tripping into things as you make your way to the bathroom in the middle of the night, groggy from sleep. Now make every trip to the loo fun!

Mobile Upgrades: Killing The Product Before Its Time?

Have to agree. The speed of newer phone models within the same series and newer app versions lead to more thought put into buying decisions. Phone lines have a definite short shelf life

Frequently upgrading the software is a real problem as updating the software might cause your phone to lag because of the older hardware.

They should come out with upgrades for the specific phones and not for the separate Operating System. This way a special version for your phones specific hardware can be made
