Connected by the internet, the Good Night Lamp is a combination of the good parts of the internet and the non-hair pulling parts of staying connected to your family: wherever you are in the world, an internet connection lets you stay in each others' thoughts. Currently, the Good Night Lamp is on Kickstarter hoping to gain some support for the design team's take on a physical social network, no matter how many oceans separate you from your loved ones.
The Good Night Lamp comes as a set of one Big Lamp and one Little Lamp, which are programmable to connect to one another. As long as the lamps share the same information, you can keep in touch with whomever you wish, whether you'd like to signal a time to make a good night telephone call, or just want to make sure someone got home safely.
