We don't know how the folks at Risk Racing got from naval undersea mine design to the Light Mine Pro, but we're glad they did. The baseball sized, sci-fi-like accessory is comprised of two LED arrays – one white, one red – surrounded by 11 protrusions topped by neodymium magnets. Stick it to any metal surface on your car, and you've fire-and-forget illumination.

Running in three AAA batteries, the eight white LEDs can be used as low-power or high-power spotlights, the four red LEDs function as blinkers or for night vision. And those magnets should come in handy in other ways, such as retrieving dropped objects – assuming the object is at the end of a baseball-sized gap. The unusual multi-function light strikes us as a fair shake at around $20, but we'll have to buy one to see the quality for ourselves.

      I really wanted this for Christmas, but Santa forgot. There is also a smaller version for about $8 US. I love this blog. Thanks for the varied content.

      "any metal surface" eh? My car has aluminum body panels as well as various aluminum bits under the hood that already make it hard to find a magnetic place for my parts tray. If someone is making a 'futuristic' gadget like this one, it may help to consider the fact that magnets require iron/steel to adhere to.

      Simply amazing what lengths some crazed inventor does to part some poor fool of his hard earned money.

        Hard earned money? So $20 is hard earned money? As said below, there's also a smaller $8 version.
