For some reason I see these showing up in some future horror show.
Can you imagine seeing the blue reflection off the profile of the thing that is going to kill you in the dark?

These light switches look like they belong on a space station. The Basalte Sentido switch glows with a cool blue LED; touch any part of it, and it reacts with a white backlight. Multi-touch different quadrants to control four separate lights individually or separately, and the backlight glows a warm gold. Basalte offer three other styles that are equally impressive.

We've seen some fancy light switches before, but these beat all. These Red Dot Award-winning switches come in various shapes and configurations, and you can custom design your own. They all work with low voltage lighting, and are available in Europe for now. Not to worry, these amazing multitouch switches will be commonplace 10 years from now.
