SnapRays Guidelight - Wall outlet cover with integrated LED nightlight

It’s called the SnapRays Guidelight and it’s genius! The SnapRays Guidelight has a built-in sensor that activates the nightlight and according to its Kickstarter page, the nightlight-outlet only consumes $.10 of electricity per year. Also, the Guidelight cuts out the middleman (a separate nightlight) and it’s expected to last up to 25 years. One more bonus: the SnapRays Guidelight snap-installs in seconds and doesn’t require re-wiring. [Gizmodo]
