    I was surfing around online and came across this UFO levitating light.

    So I bought it just for the hell of it and it turned out to be the coolest thing I bought in a while.

    Majorly stupid purchase but it's pretty cool. The LED lights change color the UFO hovers about 3/4 of an inch off the top plate thing and it has a Bluetooth speaker which actually sounds pretty decent.

    My wife thinks is it was a stupid purchase and wants it out of the living room but it's staying for a while

    That's pretty neato! Where'd you buy it from?

    Hopefully it's not a micro alien ship, that you're now holding captive in a tractor beam.

    #3 10 months ago

    I found it on Amazon

    #4 10 months ago

    was it expensive ?

    #5 10 months ago

    Yeah it was a 175.00

    #6 10 months ago

    I dig it. We need kooky shit like this in our lives sometimes.

    #7 10 months ago

    I saw it (or something similar) on Amazon and wondered how I could eliminate the long column and mount it on my RFM as a topper.

    Yeah I can't stop looking at it it's pretty cool. Then I downloaded the X-Files theme song onto my phone and I play it through the Bluetooth speaker makes it even better

    We collect $XXXX wooden boxes that you bat around a steel ball inside. What could be kookier?

    A guy could make a cool Topper out of that thing.

    Yeah. Would look sweet on AFM.

    As soon as I saw who posted this I thought oh no, I thought they operated on his foot not his head.
    Yet I am pleasantly pleased.
    I like it!

    She is right. That awesome thing should be your bed side table lamp!

    #15 10 months ago

    That's really cool. I have a floating Earth like that, the base can't be moved even bumped or the Earth comes crashing down. Is this the same?

    Yeah you have to be careful once you get it to float.

    #17 10 months ago

    For some reason, this thread is completely lacking a link to the lamp.

    #19 10 months ago

    Looks like the only stupid thing is it was cheaper on alibaba!

    Just looked it up. The stupidest thing is that it seems to be REALLY tiny. Should be floor lamp size.

    #21 10 months ago

    I think it’s cool but then again I’m the king of impulse/weird/drunk shopping.

    #23 10 months ago

    Looks like it doesn't run on 110. That's a bummer. Mine runs on 110.

    Quoted from OLDPINGUY:

    I ordered one for my son last week! Good Eye!
    $112 on Ebay.

    I was robbed!! Bummer.

    How does the speaker sound?

    #26 10 months ago

    I have this one and love it.

    #27 10 months ago
    Quoted from ibuypinballs:

    I think it sounds ok for what it is.

    Well after looking around I found something else to buy that was kind of stupid but pretty.

    Would make a great topper for Back to the Future machine
