Nothing deserves the title of “Most Useless Thing in My Room” more than the Pacman Ghost Lights I have. These lightweight chunks of white plastic look pretty out of place and not very cool when they are off. It’s tough to even tell what the lights are.

That all changes when the room lights go off and the pacman light goes on. The lights glow brightly and change colors in accordance with the music playing. There are even two options for how the lights should change color–the normal mode allows the lights to slowly and subtly change color, while the party mode involves abrupt changes of color and pulsing like it was designed for a rave. These decorations, which admittedly look odd when they are off, are always mesmerizing when turned on.
