Nightly trips to the bathroom are fraught with danger. You could stub your toe, walk into a door, or accidentally give someone else an unpleasant wake-up call. 

On such perilous journeys, consider the IllumiBowl your guiding light to relief.

The night light hooks over the rim of any toilet, with the main device hanging on the outside. It turns on automatically when someone enters the room, lighting up the bowl with a gentle glow. Once you are done, it switches off again.

Powered by three AAA batteries, the IllumiBowl can produce eight colors. You can set the light to one particular shade, or appeal to younger folks by cycling through the colors. Thankfully, the whole thing is splash-proof and really easy to clean.

The IllumiBowl is so useful, it quickly sold out after appearing on Shark Tank. Thankfully, you can get one now for $16.99, plus free shipping to the Continental U.S., through the Daily Dot store.
