You don't have to be a sci-fi geek to appreciate these lightsaber lava lamps. They're are perfect for adding a little psychedelic charm to your home decor. The standard lava lamp is a staple for college frat houses and the peace-lovers basement, but not the savvy sci-fi lover can get in on the action with a little funky retro styling.

The entire unit is designed to look like Luke Skywalker's infamous lightsaber from the Star Wars films, complete with intricate detailing of buttons and even the color of the wax (blue, which is the same as Luke's lightsaber). The on/off switch is discretely incorporated into the control panel of the intergalactic sword while the shape is kept much more minimalist with a cylindrical shape from top to bottom. The lightsaber lava lamp might not protect you against the evil Empire, but it sure will start conversations when friends spot the quirky design.
