Ever felt like equipping your house with something out of the ordinary, but beautiful at the same time? How about an interactive thunderstorm cloud lamp? Yes, they started making this kind of things too. Thunderstorms have been fascinating for humans since the beginnings of time. The way the lightening runs across the sky and the massive sounds it always makes us look out the window each time a storm starts. So a man decided to exploit this fascination and developed a lamp, in the shape of a cloud, which reproduces the light made by a lightening, at a smaller scale, of course. Richard Clarkson is the man, artist and designer, who decided to offer us remote controlled thunderstorms right in our living rooms. And the best part is that you can enjoy them without the rain. That is only if the weather outside is not contradicting you. The incredible cloud lamp is not only made to reproduce the light produced by a thunderstorm, but also to sound like one. Of course, you can use the audio player to put some music as well if you are tired of the noisy thunders. Another great feature is that they are interactive. To turn the thunders on, you just have to be near it and move your hand around it. The cloud will sense you and come to life, due to its motion sensors. So it is not a simple lamp, as it hold a rather sophisticated system.
But wait, this is not all. The lamp is also sensitive to music, and even to stream music by using the Bluetooth method. Thus, the lights will actually play on the rhythm, making it a great accessory when it comes to throwing a party. And the appearance is quite spectacular, the artist managing to reproduce very well the fluffy look of a natural cloud. You, your family and friends will be simple mesmerized by this peculiar lamp. Richard even dares to predict that in the future people will be more and more interested in having interactive surroundings and choosing to decorate their houses according to the weather.
