    Here's a picture:

    I saw this in the Mac mini setup thread, and I want one! Unfortunately it seems to be out of production, as it's not on their site anymore (the link the person posted leads to a not found page).

    Can anyone tell me the name of this thing? Maybe I can find it on eBay? Or hell, maybe someone here has one he/she's willing to sell me?

    Thanks!

    Devilot, can I suggest that this Little Devil light might be more appropriate for you? I bought one for my sister and it really does look good - you get the horns and the tail from the light and the reflection of the angel on the wall...

    How much does it cost? Is there any chance at all you can go and buy one for me and ship it over? I'll cover all costs, of course. The local IKEA don't have those at all.

    Haha, that's hillarious! :D It is adorable, but I think that the red would throw me off if I was trying to sleep. :eek:

    I was thinking of getting one of them, seen plenty of them in the Ikea store at Lakeside, London..

    Damn! Seems they have been taken off the online store, dunno if they have stock in the actual store..

    It was called, IIRC, a "Spöka" lamp (that's Swedish for "spook" or "ghost", I guess). I'm the one who posted the link, I think...

    I really like your Ikea Ghost lamp. It's cute, a great night light. Especially like the blue color. ;)

    Ok you should know its rechargable for UK voltage. I dont know if it would work with US Voltage?? :confused:

    On a separate note, i've noticed if u tap it on the head lightly the light comes on till u let go. If u press it till it clicks it stay on. A neat feature for checking the time in the dark I suppose!

    Anyways heres the lil chap:

    Hmm, I didn't think of the US-UK voltage thing. Isn't there a converter or something? If they're pretty big and expensive, then I'll have to frown and move on. But if they're small cheap things you can attach to the end of the plug and then plug it into the wall, then why not.

    Thanks for reminding me Raven II :). I've wanted one of these but totally forgot about them - they weren't in Australia last time I looked.

    For any aussie interested they're $25 each and all three models are available :p.
