Are you a fan of the Disney Sci-Fi movie franchise, Star Wars? If yes, then you are certainly familiar with BB-8. It is the intergalactic Astro-mechanical robot that looks like two metallic balls, one heaped on the other; or even like a snowman without the makeshift carrot nose and stick-hands.
BB-8 made its debut in episode 7 of Star Wars. And in the latest news, BB-8 is now a desk lamp that emits natural white light, amber light, and warm white light from underneath its head. Meet the BB-8 LED Desktop Lamp.
BB-8 LED Desktop Lamp: Details
This Star Wars inspired lamp is unique. The light comes on once you tap its head. When you touch and hold BB-8’s head, the light dims giving an ethereal aesthetic ambience. You can think of it as bringing light to the ‘dark side’.
Switching between the different light modes: amber, warm and white lights is possible with more taps on BB-8’s head. Nested in the head are LED components that shine down to give light depending on the light mode. The lamp gives off a natural white light of 40 lumens at 4000 – 5000 kelvin color.
Did I mention that the BB-8 lamp is an officially licensed Star Wars: The Force Awakens merchandise? That’s right. It doesn’t get any more authentic than this!
It has a diameter of 6 inches and a height of 8.5 inches. It also has a felt base to prevent damage on the bottom. The surface is decorated with aluminum and decals (plastic material used to transfer print using heat or water). It weighs 1.6 pounds.
Note: This lamp has small parts which may be choking hazards. So, it is unsafe for kids 3 years and younger.
This lamp can be used in the office, kids room, bedroom, living room, you name it. Wherever you can place a lamp, BB-8 will sit beautifully to lighten up your space.
So if you want to enrich your Star Wars collectables or add a bit of sci-fi to your room, office, or living space, then this BB-8 lamp is for you.
