Huey the Color-Changing Chameleon LED Lamp
Lamp automatically matches the color of whatever it sits on.
Huey is the amazing color-copying chameleon lamp that can match the color of nearly anything! Simply place this electronic chameleon on top of a colorful book, poster, t-shirt - seriously, anything! - and his internal LEDs will automatically adjust to match the hue.
Slide Huey across a magazine cover and watch in amazement as he dynamically shifts color to match whatever hue is underneath. If you'd like to pause on a particular color, squeeze the area above his hind legs. Squeeze again to resume color-matching mode.
Huey can be powered via three AAA batteries (not included) or via the included AC adapter. Flick his mode switch to "demo" mode, set him on a nightstand, and turn Huey into a color-cycling mood lamp.

Amazing lamp matches the color of its surroundings!
Merely place Huey on top of any object and he'll automatically match the color of that item. The color-copying Huey is similar to carbon-based chameleons, but instead of changing its skin color, it modifies the hue of its internal LED light to match whatever it is sitting on.
Position him on top of a beautiful turquoise book and he'll glow turquoise. Place him on a red poster, and he'll radiate that same beautiful red. Squeeze the area above his hind legs to pause on that color and Huey will remain red until pinched again.
Use Huey as a mood lamp, too!
Not only can the Color-Changing Chameleon Lamp match its surroundings, but Huey can also be thrown into "demo" mode to act as a color-cycling mood lamp. He'll slowly shift through a wide spectrum of colors until turned off or switched back to color-copying mode.
A technical view of the chameleon lamp
The underside of Huey is where all the magic happens!
The color-matching sensor shines a light in order to determine the hue of what is underneath it. It then uses this information to adjust the tone of the chameleon's internal LEDs.
Huey also features a 3-way selector switch to control its mode. It can be on, off, or in demo mode. When switched on, Huey will constantly adjust its color to match whatever it is sitting upon. In demo mode, he will slowly cycle through his available colors.
Your Color-Copying Chameleon Lamp can be powered either via the included AC adapter or 3 x AAA batteries (not included).
Also makes for a great nightlight!
Huey includes an AC adapter for long term lounging. Perch him on your nightstand and choose to let him cycle through his color palette or pick your soothing color of choice.
Of course, if you need to make a late-night trip to the fridge to snack on some spätzle, simply unplug Huey and take him with you. He can be powered by 3xAAA batteries (not included).
Squeeze Huey to pause on a particular color
For the sake of argument, let's pretend you've placed Huey on top of your delicious Red Cherry World's Largest Gummy Bear and want Huey to continue displaying that delicious color no matter where you move him. No problem!
Simply squeeze him above his hind legs. His body is made from flexible plastic and you'll feel the click of a small switch. The current color will be locked until you squeeze Huey again.
Lizards are awesome!
Here's a fun fact: many chameleons have tongues longer than their own bodies! Now check out the alternate angles of Huey when his light is turned off.
Yes, it can match Vat19's orange! (We know you were worried about that)
Our trademark orange is a blend of 100% red and 17% green. It appears that Huey can match this color almost perfectly. We're pretty sure you'll have just as much fun as we did placing Huey on just about anything you can find. Enjoy! But first, buy, buy, buy!
Where can I buy this awesomeness?
