This elegant frosted-glass ball glows different colors to display real time stock market trends, traffic congestion, pollen forecasts, or any other Ambient information channel. Unfortunately this service is not yet available for Europe, but once it will I'd buy one

    Ambient devices give you a visual cue as to what is happening in your tech world - wirelessly - like magic - adding a bizzare form of life to your desk...

    I got one of these for my brother and it is cool. I love the wifi-enabled ambient info strategy: don't interrupt me, just gently indicate there might be something I want to pay attention to. Stylish, forward-thinking and generally cool for those w/info-overload

    The Ambient Orb is a cool frosty glass ball that slowly transitions between thousands of colors to show changes in the weather, your stock portfolio, or if your boss or friend is on instant messenger. The Ambient Orb is simply plugged into any standard 110V power outlet and it is up and running on a nationwide wireless network and there is no internet connection required. The Orb does not attach to a PC. The channel for the Orb can be selected via a web interface and will update in a short period of time.

    a gentle reminder that your mother is chasing you on email or your stalker has just logged onto msn.

    I have to join the ranks of fans of this cool glass orb. It shows a beautiful, full and rich spectrum of colors, and can be set to any of 3 brightness levels so it doesn't keep you up at night. I use mine to tell me current weather during the day, and at night, it tells me what tomorrow will be like. It pulses gently if rain or snow is expected. So cool, so smart, and so simple. Form+Function. It didn't hurt that I got it for $40 at a Discovery Store going out of business sale :D

    I've got one of these. They're great! Very relaxing if you stare at it for a while, and it's a nice focal point when you need to sit and think or just sit.
