Maybe you're in a long-distance relationship. Maybe your best friend lives halfway across the globe. It's easy to stay in touch on social media, but there are more meaningful ways to connect with others. No matter where you are in the world, these WiFi touch lamps will link two or more people together with a simple touch. They're like interactive friendship bracelets.

Say you want your significant other to know you're thinking of them. All you have to do is touch the lamp and its mate will light up. With every touch, the lamp will turn a different color. The LED bulb is vibrant and long-lasting too. But what if you're sleeping or don't want to be bothered? Well, the lamp has a timer setting. You can shut it off for 1.5 hours, 1/2 hour, 8 hours, or 24 hours.

The lamp connects to WiFi, so as long as there's a signal, they'll light up anywhere in the world. However, the lamp will not connect to public WiFi locations. This might be because of security reasons. The developers are really vigilant in keeping hackers at bay. Phew.

Unfortunately, due to high demand, the touch lamp is on backorder until June 2017. A single lamp costs $75 and a pair costs $150. According to the developers, they're selling like hotcakes, so make sure you reserve yours on the Uncommon Goods website today!
