Plans for a new space station, built by a company producing the latest Tom Cruise movie, have been mocked over the design's resemblance to a sex toy.
Space Entertainment Enterprise (S.E.E.) announced plans to build the first ever space-based studio with NASA-partnered company Axiom Space.
Plans for the influencer-ready station would see the Axiom Hub 1 initially attached to the International Space Station, with the company building outside of the station before attaching it to the hub.
S.E.E. are also planning to build their own module, S.E.E.-1, for livestreamers and influencers who want to stream in space and create content that's literally out of this world.
The company says the upcoming space station is available for anyone wanting to create live stream content in space, "including films, television, music and sports events".
Ambitious plans for the project have been ridiculed after many pointed out the similarities it has to a sex toy or a Playstation controller.
One Twitter user said: "Can we discuss how their space station is apparently a Hitachi magic wand that got glued to some lightstabers".
Another added: "Lemme see that PSVR remote" along with an image of the ill-fated Playstation Move motion controllers.

The station, set to be finished by 2024, is an "incredible opportunity" says the company.
In a statement from S.E.E., they said: "SEE-1 is an incredible opportunity for humanity to move into a different realm and start an exciting new chapter in space.
"It will provide a unique, and accessible home for boundless entertainment possibilities in a venue packed with innovative infrastructure which will unleash a new world of creativity.
"With worldwide leader Axiom Space building this cutting-edge, revolutionary facility, SEE-1 will provide not only the first, but also the supreme quality space structure enabling the expansion of the two trilion-dollar global entertainment industry into low-Earth orbit".
