The new 'MoodLight' knows how humans feel and is able to portray those emotions through beautiful, captivating colors. The lamp is actually connected to Twitter and sources the 700,000,000 Tweets that are posted each day, to represent the mood of the world based on what they are communicating through this platform.

The one-of-a-kind light is able to determine different emotions based on the words people use in their posts. The emotions displayed include love, joy, surprise, anger, sadness and fear and are distinguished by posts like "I miss him" or "I love you."

What is most interesting about this lamp is that you can customize the lighting configurations to represent more than just the news from Twitter. Different combinations can be used -- such as two flashes of red -- to indicate that you have a new Gmail message.

The 'MoodLight' is currently working towards its goal on Kickstarter.
