One giant leap for me, one small step for alienkind

The Aliens are Coming!

We have now published the new website for The Alien Abduction Lamp, and we are showing a picture of a prototype for the first time! The picture shows the last prototype, and there will only be very small changes (if any) before production starts.

If you have been following the progress for this lamp since the start, you will notice that we have managed to produce a lamp that is very true to my original 3D renderings. The way from concept to prototype has gone very well, without having to compromise on any important details. The few changes that have been made from the renderings to the final products have been by will and by listening to your feedback in my little survey rather than by necessity. The most noticeable change is the removal of the ornaments and pattern to arrive at a more timeless and clean result. You probably also noticed that it has taken quite a while, but seeng the beautiful result, I think it has been worth the extra time.

The UFO itself is very solid and cast in metal with a beautiful black pearl finish (you can’t really see how nice the finish is in this otherwise great photo). The antenna functions as the on off switch, and it also has a third position for pulsing light. And of course it comes complete with glow-in-the-dark aliens, real fake grass and a poor removable bovine abductee!

(Those of you who have sent me a message with your email from the old website do not need to send a new one now.)

    How can I get involved as a distributor for the United States? Your contact form on the lamp site is broken.

    Hi Christian,

    Thanks for purchasing the lamp! Maybe yours is a little harder than usual? Can you check if it is possible to turn the antenna clockwise, and if it isn’t, then please contact abductionlamp.com to get help fixing this?
