Floating Astronaut Light: I Want My MTV

Who says your desk lamp has to be boring? You could get an old school brass lamp that says “I’m lame,” or you could get this lamp that has a moon base and a floating astronaut that glows. The design reminds me of the old MTV segues back when the network was about music.

The astronaut is attached to a flexible metal arm that allows you to position the glowing space traveler wherever you want it. Since it just runs on 3 AAA batteries, it doesn’t appear to glow very brightly, but it still looks awesome.

While it might not be good for people actually trying to work, the muted glow will be perfect for anyone trying to decorate a kids room with a soft light to keep the monsters at bay. ThinkGeek will sell you an Astronaut Light for $29.99.
