storm-lamp-speaker

It’s raining beats. Well, sort of. That man-made cloud up there might loos like an art installation of some sort, but it’s actually an interactive lamp and speaker. Its name? Yep, you guessed it: Cloud. Designed by Richard Clarkson, the Cloud reacts to nearby movement and lights up to the beat of the music that you’re playing.

Put Icona Pop on and turn out the lights, and you’ve got a thunderstorm of a completely different sort, right there in your room.

This smart little creative lamp is replete with lights, motion sensors, microphones, and a powerful speaker system. A remote control allows user to set it to different modes, getting it to act like a simple thunder cloud, to respond to movements in its surroundings, or to respond to sounds or music that it hears around it.

The Cloud Lampshade was created by Royal Design and is available for $172.

Ironically, many of those people are probably already using the cloud, even though they don’t realize it.

Lots of online services, from email storage and notes, apps, file storage and archiving, are already cloud-based. With so many options, there will come a time when you’ll forget where you stored a specific file or message. You could search all of your apps and accounts manually–which is infinitely harder when you’re on your mobile–or you could just fire up CloudMagic, a cloud-searching app which we covered earlier.
