Nope, that’s not a typo. This silly desktop organizer from Fred looks like a tiny U.F.O., complete with a tractor beam.

What Do Aliens Look Like?

We prefer the title “What MIGHT Aliens Look Like?” for Kurgezagt’s video, in which they explore the possibilities of alien life forms, and attempt to explain how they might appear, using something called The Kardashev Scale, which estimates a civilization’s potential for technology based on the availability of energy.
