Ufo Lamps Are a Sci-Fi Geek’S Dream

by Shane McGlaun

I am a big sci-fi fan and like to read sci-fi and watch sci-fi flicks. Any fan of sci-fi or cool interior design will really appreciate these sweet lamps that Jason Dietz has built and will be showing off at the Maker Faire this month.

If this dude doesn’t win whatever prize is being given out for the cool stuff shown at the faire, someone was bought off. He’s mum on the build process, but judging by the looks of the giant lamps, I’m not qualified to build one even if I had the instructions.

The lamps are made from recycled glass tubes and festooned with light diffusers, acrylic rings, CCFL lights, LEDs, and halogen bulbs. The massive lamps ate 5’5″ tall and hold ten gallons of water bubbled by a 20-gallon pump. A little plastic cow in the water moves up and down the watery tractor beam. OMG I want one of these so bad!
