Lumi smart light promises better eye comfort and health
It’s a well known fact that lighting can affect our mood, sight and sleep. Some scientists also suggest that lighting affects the regulation of emotions such as happiness and sadness through our nervous and endocrine systems. So, it’s not a wonder that winter depression is so common in cold countries. Considering all these facts, a start up from Delaware has launched a new smart light called Lumi which will give you the best possible lighting for any activity. The smart light Lumi will observe your environment and adjust the lighting suitable for the activity. For example, when you are watching TV, Lumi will use the “Watching TV” preset which will give you a softer and relaxing light of 400 Ix. For activities that require more concentration, illumination will be more to facilitate better comprehension. To state the obvious, Lumi will also automatically turn on when you enter the room and vice versa.
Lumi as of now is compatible with a wide range of smartphones – IOS 7.0 and higher and Android 4.0 and higher. If you are one of those people who are always trying to make the light perfect to suit your mood, then you can back the project on Kickstarter. The developer’s team is currently seeking $40,000 and if their goals are met, the shipping will start from October, 2015.
