LED lamp looks like alien vehicle

At $1,100, it's enough to start an intergalactic conflict

Flux

This designer LED lamp isn't quite egg-shaped enough to qualify for the evil ovum empire , but it's close enough. Just look at this thing--it's like a spherical spaceship opening up to reveal its alien passengers or a battery of death rays (most likely both).

The "Barry" fixture from Sweden's Flux has a mirrored upper interior that reflects about 70 white LEDs from the bottom half, according to OhGizmo. But the real offense here isn't alien domination of Earth; it's the price--$1,100.

If that's not enough to start a War of the Worlds , we don't know what is.
