Created a few years back by designer Lasse Klein, the “Alien Abduction Lamp” has become quite a cult favorite among collectors, and for good reason: not only is it just about the coolest UFO gadget out there, it's also a quality art piece.

The alien craft is constructed primarily from metal, with a perspex “tractor beam” capturing an unfortunate bovine victim from its astro-turf base. The ship's antenna doubles as the on/off switch, and when activated the lamp gives off a steady, pulsing glow... and we're going to assume the tiny crew won't move up from cattle and try to probe you in your sleep instead.

The original 2009 run of two thousand pieces (which includes the artist's laser-engraved signature on the bottom of the UFO and a certificate poster) is a bit hard to come by these days, but it's currently available from Australian gadget site The Funky Company.
