Superheroes never sleepOn September 4, 2017 by Kenna
Because evil never sleeps, you should light up the night with a glowing likeness of your favorite superhuman protagonist. To pay tribute with some eye-catching lighting, these Superhero 3D Illusion Lamps are now available in the Boing Boing Store.
Each lamp is modeled after 3D wireframes of your favorite hero’s face or insignia, and glows in several brilliant hues. You can choose from one of four Marvel stars: Spiderman, Deadpool, Ironman, and The Punisher, or there’s The Dark Knight for the DC partisans. To get the effect just right, these lamps are precision machined using custom LEDs. Their lights are designed to last over 50,000 hours, so you can enjoy these awesome decorations for years to come.
