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.

    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!

    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.

    I Just LOVE the lamp, I read ALL the postings, and as I was going to make a comment, I found one simular to what I would also suggest….
    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!!!
    SOOO cute!!!
    I , being a single mom want one REALLY bad, I am hopeing its NOT MORE Than 100 bucks!?!?!PLEASE?!?!?!?
    Lovin it!!! Let me know where I can get one, PLEASE!!!!

    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?

    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.

    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.

    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?

  32. James

    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.
