ThinkGeek is offering a remote control light switch that allows you to control a lamp without the expense of having a light switch installed. You plug a module into a power socket, then plug a lamp into the module. Place the Instant Switch within 60 feet of the power module and you’ll be able to remotely flip the lamp on/off and adjust its brightness with the dimmer control. I’ve seen a similar remote light switch designed by an artist with a metal switchplate enclosed in an acrylic box that starts at $150 – and it has no dimmer control. ThinkGeek’s Instant Switch is a much smarter option at $24.95 – no electrician’s fees and no artist surcharges.
