There’s gonna be rain today.

Outside, sure.

But also possibly in your living room.

Because this thing exists: the Rain Lamp, an attractive new lighting fixture that makes it look like there’s a puddle of water on your floor even though there isn’t, available now.

Let’s go straight to your questions.

So... this is just a lamp?
Yes. But it’s a cool lamp. When friends come over, they’ll look at it and say, “Hey, cool lamp.” Or maybe they’ll say something more articulate. Perhaps we’re shortchanging your friends. It’s possible.

What does it do?
It uses a special pump to drip water around an LED bulb and project ripple patterns below.

How does it work?
We sorta just told you. Pay attention.

Who made it?
This guy Richard Clarkson. He’s a designer. He made another lamp called the Cloud that’s pretty fantastic, too.

Do I have to refill this thing with water like my water filter?
No.

Okay good. Because I get tired of constantly refilling my water filter.
Sorry to hear that. Have you thought about getting one of those filters that connects directly to your sink faucet?

No, I haven’t. But I’ll look into it. Thanks.
Sure, anytime.
