Coin LampOK, it’s not the most exciting slot machine, but the Coin Operated Lamp does gently raise our awareness of power consumption. The power cuts out when you stop feeding it loose change.

It’s a very simple table lamp designed by Jethro Macey with a penny-pinching twist: instead of an on/off switch, you have to put a coin in the very prominent slot. If you run out of coins, it’ll switch off again. Conveniently, there’s a door to let you get all your change back again, but at least it forces us to think about our energy use.
