Since March, families and friends all over the world have mastered long-distance communication, but a quick text or phone call doesn't always cut it when you want to show someone how much you care. From across the world or even just across town, this Long-Distance Friendship Lamp ($95) lights up whenever your best friend is thinking of you — all it takes is one touch!
So how does it work? Each lamp is connected to its partner lamp via WiFi and reacts to a single touch, lighting up both your lamp and your best friend's lamp at the same time. It's kind of like when E.T. touches his glowing finger to Elliot's hand to show that they're friends — minus the extraterrestrial drama. Available individually ($99) or in a set of two ($198), these colorful mid-century lamps can also be paired with the original Friendship Lamp, so you and your bestie can send a little light (and a little love) each other's way while maintaining your own personal styles.
Even though it may feel like you're light years away from each other, the Long-Distance Friendship Lamp, found exclusively on Uncommon Goods, can be set to cycle through a rainbow of different colors, no matter how far apart you are. It can also be set to a different color for your best friend, mom, dad, grandma, partner, or anyone that you love, because it's always nice to remind the people we care about that we're thinking of them.
