The cumulus shape will let you trigger thunderstorms or dance parties in your living room

Richard Clarkson Studio has created an amazing Bluetooth speaker that looks like a cloud puff in your living room. It can even recreate lightning storms—to the beat of your music. This may be the coolest stereo system you'll be able to show off yet. The Cloud can trigger lightning or thunder with a wave of your hand, or just sync with any Bluetooth device to DJ your next party. You'll be able to adjust the lighting, colors and brightness. The Cloud has a fluffy, hypoallergenic fiberfill exterior (in other words, the innards of pillows) that hides the hardware within. It runs on Arduino and will allow coding-savvy developers to further customize the whimsical device.
