"Thanks for the answer. But, as far as i know, before lava lamp, the term "motion lamp" meant something different. It meant a lamp which has a "propeller" above the bulb. The heat generated by the bulb makes the air rise and…"

But who invented the glitter lamp?

The history of lava lamp is currently very well known due to a large amount of research in this area.

Here are some guesses on the subject.1. Did the inventor of glitter lamp know about such a device as snow globe? The answer is definitely "yes", since snow globes, according to Wikipedia, originate from the 1800s (btw,…See More
