When it comes to smart home tech, choosing the right lighting solution can be difficult, and the process gets even more difficult when you add in security cameras, hubs, speakers and TVs. LIFX Light Tiles won’t solve everything, but they will sure as hell make your home lighting more interesting. Unlike existing options, LIFX uses a set of five distinct tiles that can be placed almost anywhere in range of a power outlet (for the controller) using the 3M Command Hooks on the back of each tile. You don’t have to worry about the locations of existing light fixtures, because they don’t require any bulbs to be screwed in. Each app-controlled tile has a full color range from 2500K–9000K with dimming capabilities from 1%–100% and when all five tiles are on you can generate a total of 2100 lumens. LIFX Light Tiles are slated to be released in November, so plan on uniquely lighting up your home in time for the holidays.

Retro-Video-Game-Puzzle-IF2

We’ve long been obsessed with Things Organized Neatly, the Tumblr, Instagram account, and book that displays collections of items arranged in pleasing ways. It’s the reason we’re hard at work on this puzzle. When finished, the puzzle depicts a collection of retro video games and gaming systems aligned ever so perfectly. Each is made in the USA by the New York Puzzle Company and features original photography from artist Jim Golden. At 1000 pieces, it will put you to work for some time, but when you complete it you can use some puzzle glue and frame it on your wall. Out of chaos comes order, right?
