Cloud lamp/speaker combo brings thunder into your living room
Richard Clarkson, a multi-disciplinary interior designer, owns a design studio in New York and New Zealand where he experiments with different products, lights, and furniture. One of his most elegant creations is Cloud, an interactive light shaped like a cumulus cloud lamp that simulates a thunderstorm both in light and sound.

As described on their website, the Cloud is an interactive lamp and speaker system, designed to mimic a thundercloud. Using motion sensors the cloud detects a users 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.

This smart creative lamp/cloud is filled with lights, motion sensors, microphones, and a powerful speaker system. A remote control allows users 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-like outer layer definitely completes the illusion giving it the the perfect look. It would make for a fun accessory, just don’t expect to read comfortably under its light.

Check out this awesome GIF of The Cloud showing off its capabilities.

For this lovely DIY project you will need: cotton batting (found at craft stores), paper lanterns, a wooden dowel, fishing wire or string, a hot glue gun, and battery-powered LED lights. Now while you can use those non-flame candles, LED’s are actually considered safer.
The first step is to expand the paper lanterns while gluing batting to the outside the size lantern is your wish, and as you will see, the video below uses various shapes.
The second step is to tie the string to the wooden dowel and fasten the dowel to the ceiling with screw hooks so it’s nice and secure.
Next you should place clear string on each edge of the lanterns.
Finally, you can pull lights through the cloud base. You can let some hang lower than others.
So easy and cheap but looks amazing isn’t it? So enjoy in the video!

The LED Listening Cloud blinks in a sequencing colors depending upon the social media messages that are received. The cloud uses feeds from Twitter (blue lights), Instagram (purple lights), and Facebook (red lights). For example if a post on Twitter gets a sudden avalanche of “Tweets” the cloud starts flashing its blue LED lights.
Social media platforms can be very exciting, now this light influenced sculpture will allow for average spectators to feel the excitement too. Watch the video below to see the light cloud in action.
