Thanks to Tech Style for turning me on to these new Solar Powered Lamps from IKEA. I love the idea of Solar Powered items, and these lamps are decents looking enough to find a use for. I am thinking maybe kids rooms, or I could see a black and white patio lit up for summer evenings. The future is upon us. So run out and get one and try it out, I will.
