I’m slightly conflicted about this concept from Korean designer Sungho Lee: Intuitively, I love it! Super cool! How clever! I want to make a bunch of my own—as I imagine Mr. Lee did—by cutting up some paper clips, clipping the leads on a bunch of LEDs, and soldering the one to the other.

And yet, their only use, as far as I can tell, is clipping across a coin cell to make a little improvised LED light. Maybe add a magnet for a classic “throwie.” And, rationally speaking, surely that single use does not justify the extra manufacturing effort of paper-clip-shaped leads. But that doesn’t mean I don’t want some. More pics at designboom. [via nerdstink]
