I like knitting... but this is extreme.

OK... really. Who exactly needs knitting needles that are lit from inside? Apparenlty there's a market:
NeedleLite - unique lighted knitting needles and lighted knitting bags. Now you can knit in the dark and see your yarn and your work. Knit at the theater, concerts, campfires, bedtime. Perfect for the visually impaired. Soothing to the touch. The knitting gift for the person who has everything.

Personally, I'd probably poke someone in the eye who chose to knit at the theatre with glowing needles. OTOH, they would also make wicked little mini-lightsabres.

Someone who needs to knit to make it through a concert would probably be better off staying home and learning to read or investing in a DVD player instead of Chernobyl needles.

"For the person who has everything" is code for "useless, unwanted object". But you knew that.

It's a pretty silly idea, but I could see using them on a long car ride at night... Um, while my husband is driving of course.
