Do you have any friends who love mycology and everything related to fungi and mushrooms? There must be someone out there. If you are having trouble deciding what to get them for their birthday, then look no further because Yukio Takano of Japan has an answer: he has created mushroom lamps that light up using LEDs. Perfect for desks, bedside tables or in the living room, these mushroom lights can look quite real at first glance, but as soon as they are turned on glow like something out of the movie Avatar.

Each mushroom light kit is complete with nice packaging and battery packs that are embedded in the base of the wood the mushrooms are ‘growing’ out of. Unfortunately these lights don’t appear to be on sale yet, but you can see and learn more at his online gallery.
