London's "Silicon Roundabout" seems to be on a roll these days with "the Good Night Lamp" to be the latest product to make an appearance from this group of talented companies. Initiated by Design Swarm Industries each lamp "family" is composed of a large parent light that is wirelessly connected over wifi to its children. As you turn the main light on, your presence is indicated to your friends whose smaller lamps are turned on in response.
You’ll never come back to an empty home again
is one of the taglines used to describe the lights and in their FAQ when asked the question on why they are developing this product they responded with "Keeping in touch with people has gradually become more than being “always on, sometimes off”. At Good Night Lamp, we would like to think that people can share parts of their lives with their families, friends and lovers in more subtle ways with the help of an ever sensitive, invisible and intelligent technology"
Currently under development the lights are expected to go on sale in time for the Christmas season this year with a Starter Kit consisting of 1 Big lamp and two Little Lamps.
