Your own Thundercloud

"Cloud" is the latest creation of multidisciplinary designer Richard Clarkson. An interactive light and speaker system that simulates a thunderstorm in your home (except rainfall of course ;) ). Perfect for those who enjoy rainy days.

Clarkson himself explains his creation:

"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. 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."

PENCIL. NOW AVAILABLE WORLDWIDE.
After many months working to lay the groundwork for global shipping and sales, we are thrilled to announce that Pencil is now available for purchase worldwide. To celebrate, we’re offering a special discount on Amazon.com.
Called “the best iPad stylus” by Wired and The Verge, Pencil is the latest in our essential suite of mobile tools for creativity. Pencil’s special expressive features, erase, blend, and adaptive palm rejection, open up a new world of creative possibilities in Paper and other supported apps. This fall, we’re also introducing Surface Pressure, a new feature that uses Pencil’s uniquely-designed tip. Surface Pressure makes expression from every angle possible, and is coming to Pencil with the release of iOS 8.

Pencil comes in two models: Walnut, made from sustainable hardwood and including a built-in magnetic snap, and Graphite in black, brushed aluminum. Pencil is now for sale on Amazon UK, France, and Germany, and is available for shipping worldwide from Amazon.com. You can see all of the places to buy Pencil here. (To redeem the discount on Amazon.com, just click on the “Clip Coupon” link. Offer ends August 4, 2014.)
It’s been a long road to bring Pencil into the world. As we mentioned in November when Pencil first launched to US and Canada-based customers, crafting hardware from scratch is a complex endeavor, and making it available to creators around the world requires people with experience ranging from industrial design and mechanical engineering, to embedded systems and manufacturing management. Not to mention, legal expertise and in-depth knowledge of global logistics and distribution.
Thank you for your incredible support through these past months, and for spreading the love for Pencil far and wide. We hope the tools we make continue to inspire you to sketch, to create, and to bring your ideas to life.
