New WiFi lamp brings weather indoors

London, November 30 (ANI): You can now recreate the weather in your own home with a new lamp created by experimental Swiss design studio, Micasa Lab.

The Nebula 12, designed from a mysterious combination of “some peculiar techniques, liquid nitrogen, WiFi, and high-powered vacuum suction, creates a circulating cloud of steam that responds to real-time weather conditions outside.

It is designed to connect to your smartphone and gather meteorological data via the internet, recreating the climate indoors in a shape-shifting ball of fog, the Guardian reported.

“Wake up to a flooding yellow light on a sunny day,” said the designers, “or below a real cloud on that overcast winter morning.” Or you could just sleep outside.

The lamp can also be set to demonstrate the weather for the next 48 hours: a threatening low-pressure area is announced by a red cloud, and sunshine is shown in yellow.

Presumably an imminent lightning storm could be foretold by the light flickering on and off – or short-circuiting and sending arcs of electricity across the room?

“It can be used as an atmospheric source of light for romantic evening meals or high-stress business meetings,” the designers said, as well as when “doing homework, when reading, or just chatting.” (ANI)
