We present a review of a hybrid Lobster optic built up of a mixture of standard Lobster Eye geometry and parabolically bent mirrors. This design has better angular resolution in one direction while still having a wide field of view in the other. We have performed some computer simulations and comparisons with standard LE optic, hence we can discuss the advantages and/or disadvantages of such design as well as possible operating modes, especially in the case of X-ray all-sky monitor. Additionally, we are going to show first laboratory samples of parabolically bent mirrors for hybrid lobster array which were produced using several different technologies.
