Good Night Lamp is a set of Internet-connected lamps that turn on and off together. A primary Big Lamp controls one or more Little Lamps, and because the lamps are Internet-connected, they can be in different houses or different continents and still be synced. The Good Night Lamp can serve as a simple worldwide communication system—parents can see if their children are still awake, or friends can see if each other are home, all by checking whether the lamps are on or off. The London-based Good Night Lamp team, led by Alexandra Deschamps-Sonsino, is raising funds for the project on Kickstarter. They expect to ship in September 2013.
