Watch as woodworker/Sith Lord Frank Howarth draws upon the Dark Side of the Force to create a gorgeous bamboo Death Star.

Don’t expect a boring “how it’s made” kind of video either. It appears that Howarth knows a thing or two about VFX as well.

Okay, this hovering StarWars Death Star Bluetooth speaker is pretty fantastic, providing you with about six hours of streaming along with the novelty of Star Wars, levitation and glow-in-the-dark effects.

But that’s not the whole story. Oh no, not in the least. Some of these Photoshopped product photos are pretty bloody spectacular. Check them out below.

Patrick Priebe decided to create his ideal Death Star replica using a beach ball covered with layers of fiberglass and aluminum panels. However, what pushes this example over the top is its reflector, which is represented by a 84-watt laser.

The laser is made up of 14 six-watt blue lasers that were painstakingly adjusted so they would collectively focus on a single spot. The result is a $4,500 DIY project that can’t destroy planets, but definitely can melt metal and probably burn your house to the ground.

So you’re stuck in traffic, and you fantasize about having a superlaser attached to your car. We’ve all been there. Of course, there’s not much you can lawfully do in this scenario but wait.

The good news is that you can derive some kind of satisfaction out of this ordeal with the Death Star USB Car Charger:

When you plug in this Star Wars Death Star USB Car Charger, Grand Moff Tarkin will instruct you that “You may fire when ready,” and you’ll hear the superlaser let loose. The green LEDs flash with the firing noise, and before you know it, your anger is an asteroid belt, floating away.

Remember those moon lanterns? Well, this is no moon lantern.

This Death Star Paper Lantern Floor Lamp even makes great party decor. It’s an 24″ sphere which can be switched on using an in-line foot toggle. It’s perfect for a dark corner. Looks great in a playroom. Being so lightweight, you can easily hang it from the opening on the top that exposes the armature. Just remember that it’s delicate.

Colby Powell and his kids like Star Wars…a lot. So, in honor of the upcoming Star Wars film, the Powell family built a two-story Death Star as a Halloween decoration.

Like you do.

It features plenty of flashing lights and it was mounted on the roof of their home in Lafayette, CA. See it in action after the break…

In this Death Star Perplexus Maze, you must navigate the X-Wing (a.k.a. tiny metal ball) through treacherous tunnels and precarious pathways until reaching the escape hatch through the glowing red core.

The clear sphere allows you to see every angle in this 3D puzzle game, although you might need some serious Jedi force skills to complete the mission. The toy lights up and has sound effects as you play, no batteries required.

Relax in the soothing glow of The Death Star. Instead of obliterating planets, this mood light will obliterate stress. It’s USB powered and the display stand is transparent, so it appears to hover.

A true testament to the original galactic superweapon in every way but one, this majestic sphere of destruction is – unlike the original – impeccably designed. Its resemblance is intricately on point – having a textured, tactile surface and the bumps and crevices of the Death Star are clearly defined – however it’s free of a great gaping thermal exhaust pipe. Meaning the likelihood of sabotage is minimal.

A gloriously nerdy answer to mood lighting – the Death Star Mood Light is the perfect addition to all bedside tables, desks and the like. Allow the milky hues of this weapon of mass destruction to calmingly illuminate your nighttime antics.
