Alien Abduction Lamp: the Aliens have Finally Landed!

 |  |  |  |  |  October 19, 2009


After what seems like an eternity to me, the wonderful, whimsical Alien Abduction Lamp has finally landed here on planet Earth!

Lasse Klein’s whimsical lamp design first showed its face on Technabob all the way back in June 2007, and it’s taken over 2 years for a final production version of the lamp to find its way to our humble M-Class planet. That sure was a long extraterrestrial journey.

The final version of the lamp features LED that light up the alien cockpit, and a shiny steel retro alien spacecraft hovering atop an illuminated acrylic tractor beam, which itself rests on a fake grass base. With a touch of the antenna, you can flip between an always on or pulse lighting effect behind the windows. And when the lights are off, the aliens glow in the dark. Plus, it comes with a plastic cow – perfect for alien experimentation. Just don’t expect to read by this lamp – it’s really just an accent piece.

While the final version of the lamp isn’t identical to Klein’s original prototype, I still think it’s really cool. The Alien Abduction lamp is available in a an initial limited edition run of just 2000 spacecraft. You can order one here for $100 (USD).
