Panic Button Light Switch Adds Drama To Conserving Electricity

They’ve been used to launch missile strikes, eject warp cores and sound countless alarms, and now you can have a big red panic button of your own for the considerably less dramatic purpose of turning off the lights. Unless you consider saving electricity a life or death matter.

Designed to replace the standard light switches in your home, this $US25 kit features an industrial-looking brushed aluminium metal plate with a big ol’ red button for killing the lights. It also turns, functioning as a dimmer dial for those less critical emergencies involving setting the perfect mood lighting. [ThinkGeek]
