Boston Ideas' Brightfeet's Lighted Slippers
Inventor Doug Vick, who runs his business out of Thomasville, Ga., came up with the idea to develop illuminated slippers after he walked into a bedpost one dark night in 2004. The lights at the front of Brightfeet Lighted Slippers turn on when stepped into, and go off a few seconds after they've been removed, to allow the wearer time to get into bed. They are also energy-efficient -- a light sensor ensures that they won't turn on in the daylight.
