IKEA's LED Strips Automatically Illuminate The Deepest Darkest Drawers

Whether you get ready for work at some impossibly early hour before the sun rises, or you live in a cheap windowless apartment, IKEA’s new Dioder strip lights will bring some much needed illumination to drawers, cupboards and closets.

To maximise the battery life of the $35 Dioder’s six AAAs, the LEDs automatically illuminate for 15 seconds when a door or drawer is opened and a sensor is exposed to light, and automatically turn off after five seconds in the dark. Mounting is as simple as attaching a couple of screws, or just relying on a set of adhesive pads, and once in place you’ll never accidentally grab your dark blue socks instead of the black pair again.
