UFO Lamps complete with abducted animal

Although these just look like interesting little UFO table lamps, they’re actually much much larger than a table lamp.  In reality these things measure a whopping 5 feet and 5 inches tall.  Which makes it all the more fun since hidden within that massive beam of light is a poor creature being slowly pulled up to the alien spaceship.  It just gets tugged up and down time and time again, with no way to escape that glowing light.

The lamp is supposed to be featured at the 2010 Maker Faire that will begin on May 12th.  In order to create it, the person used recycled glass tubes, light diffusers and acrylic rings.  Within that tube it holds 10 gallons of water.  That water uses a 110 volt 20 gallon air pump that creates the bubbles.  Those bubbles then carry the trapped cow up and down.  The lamp doesn’t use just one form of lighting, it uses CFLs, LEDs and even halogens.  Right now all you can really do is drool over the pictures, since these aren’t exactly up for purchase just yet.

  1. If I hadn’t seen the description I’d never have known what it was supposed to be depicting. I suppose the cow sloshing around might be a clue when seen in person. Poor little cow. Sniff sniff.

  2. ARE THESE POSSIBLY FOR SALE NOW OR IN THE FUTURE OR IS HE TAKING ORDERS FOR SMALLER VERSION.! LOVE THEM!!! HAVE FRIEND… WHAT A PERFECT GIFT FOR HER!!!

  3. This is so psychedelic. It’s a bit much for my taste, but it’s a fantastic piece for the right college setting.
