Lava Lamp

Lava Lamp 3.2

Put a lava lamp in your desktop with this free program

The original lava lamp was created by Edward Craven Walker, an English designer. This type of decorative lamp was very popular in the 1960's and was featured even in many films of the time. This free program displays a digital version of the famous lava lamp that you can use in your desktop. As its real-life equivalent, it features blobs that form changing shapes, giving a soothing sensation when observed. The lamp remains always on top, and you can place anywhere in your desktop so it don't impede your viewing. It changes its colors every certain time from blue to pink to purple and more. It has seven different colors in total. You can configure the program to show only those colors you like, and to manage its size, which can go from about two inches to three times that size. Also, you can send a lamp to a friend. To do so, you can use the program's webpage or your own e-mail client.
Maybe the only disadvantage is the movement and changing colors of the program that can be distracting for some users. Otherwise, if you like lava lamps and/or want to add a retro touch to your desktop, then you may like this program.
