Calming Lamp for the Crazy and Cantakerous

If you’re old or crazy (or a little of both, like our editors) then you might find yourself looking at a White Noise Lamp. The post-modern stylings are about more than just artistic aesthetics, as the design is thought to induce calm and warm, fuzzy feelings in the elderly and the mentally ill. By lining the halls of your mental hospital or retirement home with these lamps, the unfortunate will feel more at home and less at crazy camp.

While we’re not sure how sound the science behind this is, there’s no denying that it’s a really good-looking lamp, and we’d take it home to our sanitarium any day of the week. Twice even.
