Cloud is an extraordinary lamp and speaker system that mimics the appearance and sound of a storm cloud. Created by Richard Clarkson, a multidisciplinary designer based in New York and New Zealand, the interactive light produces an incredible lightning and thunder show in response to movements and sounds around it.
Beneath its fluffy layers, the smart little cloud is equipped with lights, microphones, motion sensors, and a speaker system. Using a remote control, users can play the immersive thunderstorm simulation, change colors and lighting, or program the cloud to react to a certain sounds or a user's presence. The audiovisual system can even stream music via any Bluetooth-compatible device, making it a useful speaker in addition to a unique work of "smart" art.
