The force might be an intangible spiritual power, but it is definitely strong with these Star Wars 3D Illusion Lamps. They’re available in the Boing Boing Store right now.
These lamps are made from custom-fabricated LEDs that can assume any 3D-wireframe form, with several classic Star Wars ships and characters available. For the truly rebellious, a Millennium Falcon is an awe-inspiring piece. If you relate more to the humble droids, pick up an R2D2 or BB-8 model. And if respecting absolute power is your prerogative, choose from the Death Star, a TIE Fighter, a Storm Trooper, or Darth Vader’s iconic helmet.
Each light glows in several different colors and has a lifetime of up to 50,000 hours, so you can enjoy these brilliant decorations for years to come. You can pick up a Star Wars 3D Illusion Lamp here for $49.
