When function meets form: The Elis “WiFi Lamp”.

Far too often I see gadgets with all fluff and no flavor pass before me. While a pretty face is more than welcome, and in fact a major bullet point I look for, at the end of the day I tend to fall on the utilitarian side. That is, what good is a pretty face if it doesn’t do anything but sit there and…look pretty? The whole function vs. form thing is exactly what Onda Communications is fighting with their “Elis: Wifi Lamp”.

In short, the Elis is a rather trendy looking lamp that also doubles as a WiFi router. No more unsightly router sitting out for all to see. It’s a pretty neat concept and one that would definitely sell truckloads of units if implemented into other household designs as well. For the function minded people — it’ll top out at 21Mbps. See, it isn’t so bad now is it?
