The Andromeda Lamp: Tactical Lighting

By David Ponce

If you want to add a little bit of military flair to your digs, then look no further than the Andromeda Lamp. It’s made from black anodized aluminum and features three Picatinny rails mounted 120 degrees away from each other. These are the same kinds of rails that are used in modern rifles to mount accessories like scopes, night vision sights, lasers, etc. The Andromeda uses these so that you can mount the three arms and shades and position them any way you want, using nothing more than an Allen key. To complement its rugged look, the lamp comes with a “nostalgic filament bulb”, though you can replace it with any standard bulb that uses the same E-27 socket. Perhaps a rugged mil-spec lamp can co-exist with an eco-conscious LED bulb?

In any case, the Kickstarter project looks like it’ll get funded, and if you want your own lamp it’s $279, or $299 if you want to get different colour anodized bolts.
