LightWedge Makes Reading A Book Look Like Reading From A Tablet

If you're going to read a book, you need some light.  But you're sharing a bed with a creature that gets cranky when it doesn't get its sleep, so turning on the lamp is not an option.  You need a book light and the LightWedge 2.0 looks perfect for the job.

Unlike most book lights, it doesn't just put a moveable mini-lamp on top of your reading material.  Instead, it lays an optical-grade lens over the page to spread the light evenly, which, funny enough, makes it look like you're reading from a tablet screen.

Designed for hardcovers and larger paperback books, the LightWedge 2.0 measures 8.9 x 6.5 x 0.5 inches and weighs 7.8 ounces, making it easy to slip into a bag for convenient handling.   Lighting is confined to the area covered by the lens, so the monster sleeping next to you won't have to be roused from slumber.

The lens is attached to a bar on the side, where all the LEDs and the rechargeable battery are installed.  It can replenish juice via USB (a full charge is good for 15 hours of use), with the lights adjustable to two brightness settings.

The LightWedge 2.0 is available now, priced at $49.99.

    These recent posts are so innovative. Sure beats the $10 reading lamp that struggles to cover a paragraph with light.

    My only concern would be flipping pages. Do you just lay this on top of the book, or does it hook onto it, meaning you’d have to tuck pages under the glass as you read? That could get inconvenient.
