This useful Sony lamp can provide a romantic candle-like glow and play mood music all at once, ensuring that the perfect atmosphere is always a click away.

Following in the steps of other whimsical dual-use products like the Sony TV remote/speaker, the Sony lamp is actually a Bluetooth speaker that broadcasts audio from a phone or other smart device. From the outside, the Sony lamp looks like a simple portable light. It's the perfect accessory when sitting outside on the porch at night or having a relaxing picnic at dusk.

In addition to the Sony lamp, the electronics giant also presented a small portable projector along with its usual slate of smartphones and headphones at this year's IFA conference in Berlin, proving that it has a penchant for compact and surprisingly handy gadgets.
