This Kickstarter Invention is a Night Light For Your Toilet

Andrew LaSane

Getting up to use the bathroom in the middle of the night can prove treacherous. If you manage to make it without stubbing a toe (or worse), you still have to choose between bracing yourself for the bright lights, or risk handling your business in the dark. Because neither option is ideal, a company called IllumiBowl has created a smart and simple solution: motion sensor lights for your toilet.

The adjustable, battery-operated IllumiBowl attaches to your toilet bowl and emits a soft glow—in one of eight colors or a cycle of all of them—when you enter the bathroom, effectively acting as a "night light for your toilet."

In 2014, the clip-on light exceeded its Kickstarter campaign goal and raised over $95,000 from backers. Now, it's available for purchase directly from the company's website for $20. Check out the promo video above.
