I'm really in love with the idea of the Good Night Lamp founder Alexandra Deschamps - Sonsino:
She would like to think that people can share parts of their lives with their families & loved ones in more subtle ways with the flick of a switch, like a physical social network. The Good Night Lamp is a family of internet-connected lamps. Turn the Big Lamp on and the Little Lamps turn on wherever they are.
So please support this Kickstarter campaign, I think this an amazing project!
