The Abduction Lamp

The Abduction Lamp

I am happy to announce a project that I have been working on for a while now.

The Abduction Lamp is not meant to be a toy. It is supposed to be made in high quality from metal and glass. It is my hope that someone with a playful mind like yourself would want to have a lamp like this in their home.

The Abduction Lamp

How does it work?

A light source inside the UFO body lights up the windows and the cone shaped glass beam. The beam glass is frosted to diffuse the light enough to spread it in all directions.

A true UFO Lamp

I got the idea for the abduction lamp as I was driving past a lamp store one late evening and saw how the light fell from one of the lamps in the window. The idea stuck in my head, and I returned the day after and saw that it was a quite common lamp.

I have spent a while building and rendering it in Maya, and I will return with some of my experiences with the visualisation process in a future post.

A new theory on abduction

Visit for more images. You will also find my new theory on why aliens are busy abducting cows and people..


The Alien Abduction Lamp is moving from concept to prototype.

    High number sales I predict in the future. Let me know when I can buy a few.

  13. greg Says:

    i love the concept, especially the green grass and the hovering cow. not too keen on the little alien’s posed in the windows though… spoils a lot of the mysteriousness… maybe if the windows were just blacked out… in fact if the whole UFO was gloss black that would be super. at any rate, it’s a fantastic idea and i may be interested in purchasing one.

  14. greg Says:

    let me back up just a bit and restate that lighted, opaque windows (not blacked out) would look fantastic without the aliens, and especially if the space craft was a shiny black metal…

    and please let me know when this item is available for purchase. thanks!

  15. greg Says:

    hi again. sorry… i just showed this to my wife and she loves it too. however after viewing one of the low-angle pictures she thinks (and i agree) that the bottom needs a ring of small, pencil-sized holes out close to the edge. if this thing has already gone to press, so to speak, i’m sure i can make these modifications myself in the workshop, but i just wanted to throw these suggestions out there for you to consider. thanks again.

  16. melissa Says:

    sweet. this is the best lamp ever!

  17. abduzeedo Says:

    Awesome, finally I found the perfect lamp for me….

    Please let me know when it will be available.

  18. admin Says:

    Hi everyone!

    Thanks for your great feedback and your constructive comments. I have received hundreds of emails from the website so far, and most of these have been very positive.

    I am sorry to say that I do not currently have any contacts that are able to get The Abduction Lamp into productions. So any tips on who to contact and how to go about this will be greatly appreciated!

    And greg, thanks for your suggestions, but I’m not sure I understand what you mean by “pencil-sized holes out close to the edge”. I have been adviced to introduce some holes in the base of the UFO for ventilation by an industrial design friend of mine, which I think might be a good idea, but I didn’t think it was necessary to include it in the illustration.

    And: The aliens are meant to be removeable.


  19. greg Says:

    about the pencil-sized holes: from a low angle the spaceship looks very dark, and a single ring (or several rows) of smallish holes going around the perimeter with light spilling out would look pretty cool; you’d see it especially as pins of light on the desk around the cone/beam; it would help the piece give off an extra-special effect, like more lights shining down. take a look at the poster for Close Encounters of the Third Kind to get a better idea. also, like your friend suggested, it would be extremely practical for necessary ventilation. of course you wouldn’t cover them with a lens like the windows above but would let them be open.

  20. Fix Says:

    Just love it, and very nice work in Maya too!

    Include me to the long list of potential buyers…

  21. Wind Energy Says:

    Yes, please put me on the “must have” list.

    The aliens have also abducted a 13 mm socket, a small blue swiss army knife, one dark gray sock, and one of the rubber feet from my computer stand. The bastids!

  22. zerovoltage Says:

    that’s just totally awesome! do more designs :D

  23. Anna Korinna Szabó Says:

    Must have… :-)

  24. The Abduction Lamp at What is The Lab? Says:

    [...] er designet af Lasse Klein, som har tegnet den i Maya. Den er desværre ikke sat i produktion endnu. Se mere info på [...]

  25. Cid Says:

    The basic design is absolutly fantastic, but the cord hanging down is a distraction. Have you thought of making it spiral down around the light cone? A very loose spiral. This would hide the cord in plain sight, while adding that dizzy, cork screw, ‘pulling-things-up’ feel to the light. I’d also tilt the spacecraft, just a little. It’ll help break up all the horizontal lines, and give it a more organic ‘floaty’ feel.

    Then I’d buy one ;)

  26. g Says:

    about the cord spiraling down the beam i’d like to cast my vote: NO!!! the dangling cord doesn’t bother me a bit; it’s a lamp. but i have thought that a tilt to the ufo would look more dynamic, though if the ufo is tilted the beam might need to be offset as well.

  27. Rasmus Says:

    Why not making the ligth come from belov throught the glas. This way you hide the wire.

  28. Bill Says:

    Let me show it on my site when you have it ready!

  29. Colter Says:

    i think that this is an extremely orginal idea and i would buy it in a flash. how can i buy one….flash!!!

  30. Mikey Says:

    I would buy two, please let me know how to get them. Fantastic Work.

  31. Carlos Perez Says:

    This is awesome! Add me to your list, er, take me to your leader!

  32. Kimberly Says:

    Please email me when this fun lamp becomes available to buy! My dad will go crazy for it! Nice Job!

  33. adastra Says:

    All your base are belong to us!


    I need one of these. Really.

  34. Misty Says:

    THIS is really great!!
    I bet many are thinking, “why didn’t I think of this”??
    Well, I am glad someone did, congrats!
    I can’t wait for them to be avaiable!
    Question, will the abduction light beam be glass or unbreakable plastic??

  35. Alan Eisenberg Says:

    may i be your distributor in the US? this is better than the wheel!

  36. Jim Says:

    Wa-a-a-a-ant one! Ple-e-e-e-e-ease!
    On a slightly less whiny and irritating note, how much are you planning on selling these for, if and when (and I really hope there’s no if) they go into production? And what about a little plastic stand on which you can place ‘abductable’ items within the cone? Customisable!

  37. Nobuya Says:

    Nice lamp!
    It’s a great gift for someone who is considering of changing their job because of the stresses and strains :D

  38. admin Says:

    Thanks again for the great feedback and many good suggestions!

    To all of you wanting updates: The best thing to do is to use the form (“send me a message”) at, enter your email and check the “receive updates”-checkbox,

    cid & g: Tilting the ufo might be a very good idea. Maybe it should be possible to set the degree of tilting.

    alan: You didn’t leave me your email. Please send me a message at

    jim: I wish I could tell you, but it’s too early to say. I have only had talks with distributors so far.

    I read all messages and I try to answer – but my backlog is growing, so please be patient.

    I´d suggest using a series of light diodes instead of a regular lamp. That way heat wont be a problem and directing the light into the glassbeam (I suppose its acrylic glass, plexiglass)an easy task.

    SORRY for my english, I have to say that I have seen this lamp (or a lamp like this) on a film. This film is THE RING of Gore Verbinsky, the lamp is in the nighttable? of the boy. isn´t it?
    Please check it

  56. maria Says:

    BUT I LOVE IT. please i want one of them.

  57. herr klein Says:

    Maria: I’m glad you like the lamp! I have recently been told that there is a highly stylized ufo lamp in the Ring, but it is not the same lamp, and it’s not at all that similar.

  58. maria Says:

    Ok, when i saw that film i thought that i would like to have one, and now my dream is nearer. come on, let´s do them quickly! i´m waiting for.

  61. Lorna Says:

    Definately must go into production! But, for all the pre-teens that will have this lamp in their room, might want to make one with a plastic base, instead of glass. Could have a whole additional line of things to be beamed up! Can you imagine the additional revenue? Every day people aren’t buying this is money wasted! ;-)

    Fantastic – please let me know when they are available I WANT ONE!

    hi how much of dollars for one lamp-ufo thank u from marco

  66. fritjof Says:

    Splendid design! hope you make it through with production. Pretty complex stuff. Neither the prototype nor the first correction will be good enough for final production, but then! If you can sell me this lamp, in mint style, I would pay up to $300. I can´t speak for anyone else, but there is always a limit to what people would like to pay. Good luck on a great idea and design! Looking forward to see this come through.

  67. Annette Searle Says:

    You absolutely must get these lamps into production – and put me down for one, I’ve reserved a special place in my office for it, next to the Star Trek Barbie & Ken and my communicator!

    Love the lamp. Let me know when I can get one

  72. Jeff Says:

    Can you put stuff in the light beam? Also PLEASE let me know when you can purchase and WHERE!!! Please make it a Realistic and reasonable price. You can sell it to that person for $300 and sell it to me for a Realistic and reasonable price I would think $149-$189.

  73. walter gass Says:

    truly excellent lamp. I would definitely buy one of those.

  74. Nan C Says:

    Tried to contact thru the other site, but couldn’t.

    I LOVE this thing! When you do get ‘em into production, I WANT one! Or two, or… you get the idea.

    I agree about having some tilt to it; but with or without a tilt, I would buy one of those things in a heartbeat. Or more, really.

    What a terrific idea.

    (You might wanna start the patent process going – really. This is too good an idea to lose)

  131. Darksangel Says:

    Why dont you have changable ground plates ie. grass (you already show), rock, snow, mountains, beach and even one with a crop circle that spans the light beam indent!! etc.all withthe beam indent in of course.
    You should do a ‘car abduction’ add on
    (matchbox size car obviously) and as well as the normal bulb light there should be LED ‘ambient’ light settings for the beam and ufo windows of colours red, lime
    green, bright white, blue and purple(violet). You should also have different human abduction models and poses, aswell as the one you have, classic poses like the ‘Travis Walton’ abduction pose ( as seen on the cover of both the book and dvd film ,’FIRE IN THE SKY’) should be done or just have the travis walton pose as your human abduction model. What really makes your lamp are the aliens in the ufo windows they are great and dont change this, make them removable, but dont change them. One final idea i have is to make the underside of the ufo chrome (silver) this will just finish it off beautifully. Please please PLEASE put this lamp
    into production – its the best lamp ive ever seen………..DO IT!! and put me on your mailing list once its for sale.

    Hallo. Diese Lampe wurde in der FHM vorgestellt. Sie ist wirklich sehr gelungen. Ich würde mich sehr freuen wenn man dieses schöne Stück auch kaufen könnte. Das wäre echt ein Hingucker für jede Wohnung. Über eine Antwort würde ich mich sehr freuen. Gruß Steffen Kiesswetter, GERMANY :)

  135. Jim Says:

    Riktigt juste lampdesign. Har inte sett den version av lampan nån sa fanns i “The Ring”. Skulle ju vara synd om det inte gick att realisera den för att den redan var gjord. Undrar å andra sidan då om den finns nånstans att köpa redan?

    Också snyggt byggt i Maya. Jag var 100% säker på den var fysiskt verklig innan jag kom till den här sidan! Förklarar dock hur kossan kan hänga i luften vilket konfunderade mig kraftigt tills nyss. :)

    Lycka till med produktionen iallafall. Ser fram emot ett färdigt resultat.

    This is such a cool lamp. PLEASE LET ME KNOW WHEN IT BECOMES AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE AS I WILL ABSOLUTELY BE BUYING ONE. It is sooooo amazing and I have never seen anything like it.

  139. Joe Putnal Says:

    Just finished filling out your survey. Can’t wait, I will definitely buy one. I agree that it should be high quality, I would like it to be collector quality. I suppose you might be able to find a high quality plastic for the UFO, and still make the beam glass. Metal would have the best effect though. The question of cord or battery is a tough one. Battery is a cleaner look, but it would take several probably, and I would guess that they would get eaten up pretty quickly. Rechargeable batteries perhaps? I guess it depends on whether people intend to use the lamp regularly as a real lamp, or if it is more of a display item. If the former, then you probably need a cord. If the latter, then batteries are OK. I’m honestly not sure how I would use it, probably in my office, and if so I would use it as a real lamp. Well, I’m sure you’re having a great time making it, so whatever you do, I’m sure it will be a fantastic product!

    It is still hard to say exactly when the lamp will be available. I expect to see a fully working prototype in a few weeks time, and how soon it will be available after that depends on a number of things, including if there will be need for changes, time for CE, UL and other approvals etc. But I am sure it will be some time this autumn!

    I am also sure that all of you who have left me a valid email address here or at will be the first to hear about it when the product is available.

    I am still very much intersted in buying a lamp or two so please let me know when I can preorder it. And I do hope you decided to go with the higher qulity metal construction, even though it will make them slightly more costly. Thanks.

  151. J. Behm Says:

    I’d buy one right now if it was available. Damn. Please drop me a line when it’s in production. If I can get it up to Canada. Brilliant. Thanks

    Dear Lasse, I hope the Abduction Lamp comes to market soon! I have been showing it to anyone and everyone for all these long months. Now, I have heard a couple of those people who are impatient for them saying that they will just go ahead and make their own and maybe even sell them… under an alternate name, of course. If I’m hearing such talk, there are surely others thinking the same thing!

    You wrote last summer, “I am sure it will be some time this autumn!” I hope nothing negative has happened for you that autumn has turned into late winter!

  164. Lasse Says:

    Many thanks to you all for your very kind and encouraging comments!

    Please know that we are working hard these days to finalise the lamp. I have the second prototype standing next to me on my desk as I write this, and I think it looks fantastic. It has a metal UFO body with a finish that I am sure you will all like as much as I do!

    Wayne: I am happy to hear that you and your friends like the lamp so much, and that you are impatient to get it.

    You should warn your friends who plan to steal this intellectual property that the design has been formally registered and patented, and that we will pursue any infringements.

    I am sorry for causing false hopes by saying that it would be available last autumn, but I hope it is good news to you that the prototype is very close to the final thing. Please hang in there a little longer. As you can see from the above, it will not be long now.

    Please think of making different colours onder the ship, different light sources/colours, and one other idea… Put different objects under the light.. People, car, different scenery, mabey it could come with 2 or 3 types to get differeent “vibes” light situations from the adorable alien lamp!!!

    Very cool lamp, a must have for any UFO enthusiast, can’t wait for mine to show up.
    It would make for an awesome gift too, and would be welcomed by anyone that is into the subject.
    Nice job on the website too, very retro 50′s scifi looking, hats off to the web designer(s)!

    I got my alien abduction lamp today!
    It is so much more awesome than I deserve. BUT, it has a U.K. plug on it. I can’t plug it in! Is there an adaptor I can use or can I put as U.S. plug on it safely?

  178. Lasse Says:

    You will need a regular travel adapter to convert the currency as well as providing the US plug. I guess you’ll be able to find one at RadioShack or a travel store.

  179. James Says:

    Is there an update to the U.S. approval? I ordered one of the limited 2000, will I still get my limited lamp #51? I tried going through the lamps website but it won’t take messages for me.

  180. Christian Says:

    Hi there! I just recieved my lamp today. How do I turn it on? The switch at the top seems stuck?

    Regards Christian

  181. James Says:

    Hi. I’m still waiting on the lamp. I received an email on April 26, 2010 that the lamp should be ready in 3 weeks. It’s not 5 weeks. Is there an update? Do I still get the limited #51 lamp?

  182. James Says:

    Still waiting for my lamp. The last email from Tiger said it would be shipping in 2 weeks. It’s been 4 weeks. The email before that said it would be ready in 3 weeks. I waited 8 weeks for a follow up email.
