Completely transform a room for under $20 – a perfect gift for space lovers
You already know we love star projectors here at Space.com, from the novelty starry sky projectors in the shape of an astronaut which project a lava lamp atmosphere in a room, to more scientific models such as the National Geography Astro Planetarium.
This is the first, it doesn’t really care about night sky accuracy, but its purpose is to instantly improve the atmosphere and mood of a room. We reviewed the BlissLights Sky Lite 2.0 Star Projector earlier in the year, which is the second iteration of what we’re seeing at Walmart – the BlissLights Sky Lite Star Projector (opens in a new tab).
That said, given that it’s (sort of) under $20, we’d say that if you’re buying for a space-loving kid or a space-loving techie this holiday season, you can’t get it wrong, and the BlissLights star projector we have here might be the perfect buy.
Why do we say that? Well, the main difference between this BlissLights Sky Light and the BlissLights Sky Light 2.0 is that the latter is controlled by a smartphone app, and the former is controlled by touch buttons, which keeps things simple. The other difference is that the SkyLite is limited by only showing blue or green stars and blue nebulae, whereas the more expensive BlissLights 2.0 (opens in a new tab) has customizable nebula colors.
It’s a great gift for a budding scientist or astronomy enthusiast, someone with a game or music room, or even a home yoga studio or gym. We also know of people who simply use it to help them fall asleep. Immersive lights and patterns immediately change the mood of a room and you can get lost watching them dance and swirl across your ceiling or walls.
