This Ridiculous, Totally Necessary Bedside Lamp Dispenses Water With the Push of a Button

All So You Don’t Have to Get Up in The Middle of the Night

By Hadley Tomicki ·

As Samuel Taylor Coleridge famously wrote in his epic poem, The Rime of the Ancient Mariner:

“Water, water, everywhere… and not a drop coming out of your bedside lamp in the middle of the night.”

Or something like that. We’ve never actually read the thing.

But forgive us our lyrical shortcomings, because it’s time for HID Sips, a ludicrous-but-mandatory lamp that sits on your bedside waiting to dispense clean water at an arm’s reach.

This is a practical looking LED lamp with a replaceable shade that solves a dilemma as old as humankind.

You wake up in the middle of the night, your mouth as dry as Tuscon. You’re in desperate need of water. Sure, you could do a crazy thing like getting your butt out of bed to get some. But that’d basically be a wrap on your much-needed beauty sleep.

But with this thing, you’ll already have stashed a gallon of water into a vessel that discretely fits inside the lamp and flows through food-grade tubes. You hit the button on the back. And water trickles from a stainless-steel spout located below the bulb. There’s even the option for a built-in disposable cup holder. We trust you’ve got it from here.

Soon, you’re adequately rehydrated and slipping back into the deep musings that will ferry you back to a peaceful slumber.

Such as: Water and electricity. What could go wrong?
