Do you like it when it’s raining? Many people claim that rain and thunderstorms help them sleep better, and sometimes those soothing raindrops outside make getting out of bed really hard.
Inspired by these facts, Richard Clarkson Studio has designed a real cloud lamp that produces thunderstorms in your bedroom.
Sounding like a fairy tale? Well, this is real, and you can have one of these lamps in your home.
“The Cloud is an interactive lamp and speaker system, designed to mimic a thundercloud in both appearance and entertainment.”
“Using motion sensors, the cloud detects a user’s presence and creates a unique lightning and thunder show dictated by their movement.”
This next-generation lamp is equipped with full-motion sensors, a speaker system, and microphones, allowing you to control the Cloud’s sound and sensitivity to movements around it.
The lamp is made from a hypoallergenic fiberfill, and it releases a nightlight and music reactive mode.
You also have full control over the ‘Cloud.’ All you require is a wireless remote, and you can enjoy a soothing night’s sleep under the thunderstorm.
Oh yeah, it sounds pretty freakin’ incredible!
The Cloud uses a Philips LED light to make thunders.
“The system features a powerful speaker system from which the user can stream music via any Bluetooth compatible device.”
“Using color-changing lights, the Cloud is able to adapt to the desired lighting color and brightness. The Cloud also has alternative modes such as a nightlight and music reactive mode.”
You can also fill your entire room with these lamps, and you’ll feel like you’re in a massive, sky storm every time you enter your bedroom.
The company is also making rainbow lamps, that is, if you don’t like the thunderstorm cloud lamp. And each Cloud lamp will cost you around $3,300.
You can also get a smaller version of this ‘cloud,’ called the ‘Tiny’ at $680.
There are also non-interactive clouds for $960, so there’s no reason for you not to furnish your home with these lamps.
Add this to your next budget immediately, because it’s really the coolest thing you’ll ever see and you definitely need it in every room in the house.
This is a new kind of magic, not based on illusions or trickery, but on codes and sensors
For the past several years, designers have been adding more skills and creativity to their tool kits. The Arduino platform is one such opportunity for designers to prototype and design what is inside the ‘black box’ of electronic devices.
Inexpensive and easy-to-program microprocessors allow designers and users to understand better the nature of electronic goods, which help in creating new and meaningful interactions.
On a higher level, the Cloud is an effort to assist in the development of this industry. In fact, the Cloud’s code is available to the public to freely use and improve, which can help in providing the blueprints for the next generation of smart devices.
