Bye-5 Lets You Turn off the Lights by Greeting it With Your Hand

If you are someone who constantly forgets to turn off the lights when you leave a room, then you will love the Bye-5. Bye-5 is a quirky little light switch designed to look like a hand.

How does a hand-shaped light switch help you remember to turn off the lights? By encouraging you to give it five! Bye-5 is illuminated by an LED light reminding you that the lights are still on. When you give Bye-5 a high-five, the light turns off and the light from the hand guides you out of the room.

In addition to lowering your electric bill, Bye-5 could have a small psychological benefit. Who doesn't love giving a high-five, especially at the end of a long work day? No one; the answer is no one. Except for those without hands.
