I saw this for the first time last week. If it delivers on its promise, it's a total niche killer (I still want to test it). Obus is a rechargeable indoor/outdoor light that lasts a long time (it's LED based) and is totally weatherproof (think heavy rain). I've never seen anything that could do all this before. Oh, and it's also a directional light (think flashlight) when turned horizontal. You can prebuy now for August delivery.

• Intuitive bi-directional light design adjusts from ambient light when placed on a flat surface to directed light when held in hand
• Light glows while on the charging base or off, with up to 25 hours of battery life

• Brilliant warm light illuminates large areas evenly, with adjustable brightness
• Energy-efficient LEDs use up to 3.2 watts of power and are rated to last 40,000 hours
