Lightleafs – Lamp Bookmarker

There’s always those moments when you need light and can’t quite flip the switch or out in public in some dimly lit restaurant that makes it impossible to read the menu. Why do they do that???

As the bottle tips into the glass, the glass lights up. As you tip the glass over, the light dims. You can ...
