I’ve a problem in my little writing den. I need some storage space but since it’s going to be plopped in the corner of the room it needs to look cool. I can’t just have a boring old blanket box.
Unbox Industries’ impressive Alien Egg is a contender!
The motion activation is, as you’d suspect, managed by infrared. You can power the egg off USB or, more likely, from 4 x AA batteries. It’s 53cm tall and 41cm wide but only 4kg in weight. That’s not huge but certainly a place for a mess of cables, dice, bags of gaming tokens, etc.
The quirky storage chamber has another function. Since it glows a spooky green it also works as an ambience lamp. Not sure about using it as a nightlight in the kids room, though.
The catch? It’ll set you back $200.
