Once in a while you will come across a gadget that is so wacky, not sharing it with the rest would be tantamount to sinning. The Desktop Grenade Lamp that is a lovely combination of two ideas pulling the grenade’s pin will turn the lamp on instead of resulting in a deadly explosion.
When completely closed, it measures just 2.75? tall (and looks like a high tech stapler). Open it up, and it can reach up to almost 22? in height. This beautiful design doesn’t come cheap, the price is $595 USD, but if you want something cool and elegant you have to pay the price.
Because of the way the lamp is built, the light also illuminates the glass beam, creating that delightful X-Files effect.
The Mushroom Lamp is a glowing feat of technology. But it’s not the power efficient LEDs that will stretch the life of the 4AA battery power supply that has us impressed.
