The Alien Abduction Lamp

I think this is one of the coolest lamps I have ever seen. The Alien Abduction Lamp “is a lamp for Sci-Fi fans of all ages. A light bulb inside the metal UFO lights up the beam and the windows. The glass of the beam is frosted to distribute light in all directions.” It’s still in a concept stage, so it’s not manufactured, but I think it would make a great birthday or Christmas present for the little ones. The idea and design belong to Lasse Klein.

The Lamp also comes with 4 add-ons:

  1. Alien Abductors
  2. Bovine Abductee
  3. Human Abductee
  4. Multi-Function Antenna
