There’s something oddly soothing about thunderstorms and sleep. Often it’s hard to get out of bed when it’s raining outside and it makes getting to work that much harder.
To capitalize on people’s sleepless nights and the effect that a thunderstorm can have on individuals, Richard Clarkson Studio created a real cloud lamp that creates a thunderstorm right in your bedroom!
According to Clarkson, “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.”
It contains full motion sensors, microphones, and a high-quality speaker system. You control the cloud’s sounds and its sensitivity to movements around it.
Made from hypoallergenic fiberfill, the lamp encompasses a nightlight and music reactive modes.

You can control your cloud using a wireless remote (see the awesome video on the next page). Oh yeah, it sounds pretty freaking incredible.
It uses a Philips LED light to simulate a real thunderstorm.
“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 can adapt to the desired lighting color and brightness. The cloud also has alternative modes such as a nightlight and music reactive mode.”
Fill your entire room with them, and feel like you’re in one massive storm.
Don’t want a thunderstorm…. well how about a rainbow?!
The cloud light will run you roughly $3,300
If that’s out of your budget you can try some non-interactive clouds for $960
You can also get a smaller version called the ‘Tiny’
Now with new music reactive modes
You can purchase the cloud-smart here. The studio has also developed numerous other cloud light designs like the cloud shade and the cloud stand. However, if these are out of your budget, check out the DIY cloud light that’s simple to make!
