Experience archive #5 : The Good Night Lamp

We really like this – The Good Night Lamp – a lovely concept using an everyday item (a lamp) that people are so familiar with and connecting them via web to bring together geographically dispersed people. A great example of passive, abstracted interface design that wraps a significant amount of meaning up into a simple on/off interface – “The Good Night Lamp™ is a family of connected lamps that lets you communicate the act of coming back home to your loved ones, remotely.”
