* Chose light, or darkness, with this Darth Vader-themed Clapper

Remember the clapper?

Its tagline was “clap on/ clap off,” and the idea was that light switches were passé.

These sound-activated switches seemed almost magical, and later versions could be programmed to respond to different “cues,” like, a dog barking. It may not have replaced the light switch, but the clapper did inspire plenty of pop-culture nostalgia.
