Star Wars fans who think you have everything Star Wars, think again. I bet you are missing a light of sort, which if it is indeed the case, then the R2-D2 Architectural Desk Lamp will help to complete your all-thing Star Wars set up. There’s something a particularly alluring about this adorable lamp based on the screen-famous droid from the sci-fi franchise, though we must stress that it wouldn’t be the case if its a Darth Vader’s helmet because he belongs to the Dark Side. Get the picture? Clearly, little Artoo here is designed to shed some light so you won’t fall for the Dark Side. Clever, huh?
It is an officially licensed merchandize and while it has a decapitated R2-D2 head as the lamp, it does no holographic projection, neither will it make cute digital noises (I guess you will have to improvise a little if you wish to have the sound effects). Putting out light is all it does, but as boon, it is definitely more articulated then the actual R2-D2 as it is totally positionable and adjustable, just like a good desk lamp should. The light socket will fit the energy-sucking 40w incandescent Type A bulb (who in the world still use that???) or the more eco- and utility-friendly 13w compact fluorescent (not supplied).
Want one? You can pick up the R2-D2 Architectural Desk Lamp from ThinkGeek for $59.99 each.
