An LED lamp for Captain Kirk

It's expensive, but it kind of looks like the Enterprise

Maybe we had phasers on our minds lately (a frightening thought), but the first thing we thought of upon seeing this lamp was the USS Enterprise.

Our weird fixations aside, the Mix Lamp from Luceplan is worth noting not just for its galactic appearance but also its practicality. According to Treehugger, the LED lamp has a life span of 50,000 hours while consuming only 5 watts of power. Unfortunately, it would probably take longer than that to offset its $472 price.
