physical social networking with good night lamps
based out of london in the UK, a group of designers have developed 'the good night lamp' - a lighting project derived from the
curiosity involved with 'the internet of things'. using the web to inter-connect families around the world, the lamp works by
creating a physical social network that gets activated when interaction is engaged between a 'big lamp' and 'little lamp' -
with the larger of two acting as the controller of the series.
presented at the 2013 CES in las vegas, the project seeks to communicate the act of coming back home to your love ones remotely.
