Levitating storm cloud is actually a bluetooth speaker

Two years ago, Richard Clarkson made the Smart Cloud, a realistic-looking cloud-shaped lamp and speaker. Designed to evoke a thunderstorm, the cloud flicked and boomed out thunder, as well as functioning as a regular lamp. This time, he’s disguised a bluetooth speaker as a floating cloud.

Richard’s new cloud, Making Weather, was created in collaboration with levitation specialists Crealev. Made of white, hand-fluffed polyester fibres, each speaker completely unique. The problem with the original Smart Cloud was that it had to be hung from a ceiling cord. And having that cord completely broke the illusion of a cloud floating in your living room. Making Weather has magnets that let the cloud float a few inches off the base.

The best part is that the cloud has sound-reactive LED lights installed. Hence, these lights create music reactions like thunder and lightning, depending on what’s going on in the music.

While the Smart Cloud is an actual product that you can purchase (for a whopping $3,360.00 US), no release information has yet been announced for Making Weather. Currently, the design is still a prototype. However it will hopefully be available to purchase soon, although it likely will fall in a similarly expensive range.
