Meet the Flickering: an elegant light with a capacitive sensor. It turns on when your hands are near. The design is elegant and minimalistic. You can use something like this in your back, when you are reading a book, and in other scenarios. It is made of aluminum and plexiglass and has 48 hours of battery life. It only weighs 50 grams.
The Flickering looks good and seems to get the job done. This project is funded on eppela at the time of this writing.
