Oozing Goo - The Lava Lamp Syndicate

Hi everyone, I was wondering if anyone has received their pre-order of a Mathmos Smart Astro yet. I ordered mine back in the middle of September and I've not received mine as yet. Hopefully they will be coming out soon, I paid for two as I ordered them.

Hi, i am waiting too :)
I have ordered two smart astro lamps at the day when they came out for pre order.
Last week i called Mathmos and they told me they will start shipping between 15. Novembre and 20. Novembre.
So maybe tomorrow the first people will get their smart astro.

If anyone get the lamp, please directly post pictures :)
ive not recieved mine either, and wasnt that happy they took payment straight away, so there got intrest on my cash, never used to be like that, used to order then get charged when it was sent
I know what you mean Johnny. I paid for my two lamps on the 17th September and I was thinking the same thing. I thought they would have arrived before now.
i did fone up shortly after i ordered it online when i noticed the money had been taken, the woman who i thought wasnt very helpfull or lacked customer care just said thats normal practise, i asked what the release date was and got short reply "november" i felt after the fone call "that was a waste of time" im sure the lamp will be worth the wait just wonder if it will faze thru the colours or u just click on say red, purple, blue..... does anyone know
it will daze through the colors smoth.
And you can stop it and hold a color.

Which color version did you all order? I ordered both colors :)
Unfortunately Johnny most of the people who deal with customers at Mathmos these days, just don't give a dam about the people who buy their products, strange way to run a business!!
i ordered the red-blue model as thats all i could afford , thou i have a custom astro glitter bottle i will also use on it , so i get 2 effects
On the UK mathmos page we can read now "Expected last week of November"
Very sad :(
Im sure they will :)
I hope that the German customers doenst have to wait one week longer as the uk customers :/

But i found something else:
"Smart Astro is lit only by LEDs and like most LED lights a darkened environment is best to see the full colour changing effect."
This is added new too. Maybe they found out that the LED colors arent very bright as they show on the pictures.

And they write "expected last week of novembre"... so it can be the middle of decembre too.
I read that bit about LED's and a darkened environment several weeks ago, it doesn't bother me really. I really hope that the delivery doesn't run into December as one of my lamps is a gift.
i cant help wondering what life span these led bulbs will have , ive had several of there led phone charms and they lasted a couple of months, i hope there new non bulb heating process can be extended / adapted so in the future we can buy that part to fit in vintage lamps instead of the standard bulbs
I heard, that if the led's are broken in the base, that you have to buy a new base.
