You don’t need to step outside to enjoy the magic of a thunderstorm; just watch it happen in this incredible lamp design by Richard Clarkson. It’s interactive, and the thunder and lights can be activated by waving your hand underneath it. Clarkson’s website states:
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. 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.
I’m going to put this in the category of things I would definitely buy if I had a crapton of money.
