How's this for a centerpiece? Designer Richard Clarkson -- known for his interactive thunderstorm lamp -- recently released details about his latest project, and it's going to blow your mind. He's created a tabletop speaker in the shape of a levitating, weather-creating cloud.
Clarkson made the new gadget -- called "Making Weather" -- in conjunction with Crealev, a Netherlands-based company that specializes in levitation technology. The Bluetooth speaker uses magnets to levitate the hyper-realistic polyester cloud off the base. As if that wasn't cool enough, the cloud also lights up and uses thunder and lightning effects in reaction to whatever music is playing.
This high-tech centerpiece is sure to wow your guests, but unfortunately, it's still just a prototype, meaning you'll have to dream about it for a little while longer.
