“The Imperial Senate Lighting Company will no longer be of any concern to us. I have just received word that the Emperor has dissolved the need for any of their dimmer switches. The last remnants of the Old Republic have been swept away.”
“But that’s impossible. How will the Emperor maintain complete control of the ambient lighting in the galaxy?”
“The regional governors now have direct control over their own lighting. Fear will keep the local systems in line. Fear of this Death Star lamp with adjustable mood lighting.”
I’m sorry. I know, I’m a huge nerd, but that’s all I can think about looking at this awesome Death Star Indoor/Outdoor Mood Light from ThinkGeek.com. The makers say this 15-inch sphere can actually work as a chair, holding up to 190 pounds, or as a footstool, but we mostly love it for what it can do as a lamp.
This Death Star lamp has 16 different colors and brightness controls, all managed by remote control, for when you can’t use the Force to change it with your mind. It also has four modes: flash, strobe, fade, and smooth, so you can always find the right lighting when destroying rebel scum or hosting a scruffy nerf herder.
The lamp is rechargeable, but will run you 200 dollars. Though it’s tough to put a price on being able to make horrible Death Star lamp puns like this:
“Princess Leia, before your execution, I’d like you to join me for a lighting ceremony that will make this battle station magical. No star system will dare oppose the Emperor by throwing it’s own party on the same night now.”
