Normally shooting twice just to be sure is a good idea, but in this case you’re just going to undo your progress. That’s because this lamp doesn’t turn on by means of a switch, clapping sound or tap—you have to shoot it, bringing a whole new meaning to the phrase “kill the lights.” Designed by the Japanese design company bitplay, the Bang! Lamp comes with a matching gun, and when you shoot it the lampshade tips over as if it’s been shot. While I’m not typically the type of person who keeps a gun at my bedside, I think I can make an exception this time.
