In 2010, we posted the design concept for BANG!, the interactive desk lamp that goes on and off by firing a handgun-shaped remote control. The concept has now been made into a real product by Taiwanese company, bitplay and is currently available in Japan, Hong Kong and Taiwan.
Bang! is a desk lamp with a gun-shaped remote controller. User can fire the “gun” to turn the light off. The light goes out and the lampshade knocks to the side, showing that it’s been hit. To turn it back on, simply shot it again, and the lampshade will raise up slowly and turn the light back on at the same time.
