Shoot the Lights Out With a Bang!

By Sam Gibbs on at

Ever wanted to shoot out the lights, but never had a gun to hand? The kooky chaps over at bitplay had the same feeling when they designed and produced Bang! -- the desk lamp you can actually shoot out.

It's available for around £220 and features an infra-red remote in the shape of a gun with a small black ring receiver around the base. Not only does the light go out when you shoot at it, but the lampshade tilts to the side to show it's been hit. To switch it back on and resurrect the shade simply shoot the lamp again. Of course if that all gets too much like fun, it's got an ordinary on-off switch too. I want one! [bitplay via TechEBlog]
