There are plenty of smart lights you can control from your phone, but this one lets you direct the light using an app.
It’s called Fluxo. While you can’t move the light from your phone,
It’s a pendant lamp that consists of 300 LEDs. You use the app to brighten or darken certain ones and change the mood of the room. To do this, you ‘paint’ light on the screen by drawing with your finger. To brighten one part, go over it a few times to ‘paint’ some more. Find a setting you like? Store it as a light scene within the app. Then whenever you select it, the room will take on that look you like so much.
It also has an uplight whose colour you can change, giving you even more mood options. And it learns which scenes you use at which times of the day, and switches to them automatically Of course, you can change them whenever you like.
It’s smart enough to know when you’ve entered or left the room too, and will turn itself on and off respectively.
The LEDs have a lifetime of up to 60,000 hours at full power. The makers say it will last you 10 years before needing replacing.
It’s raised over €12,000 of a €50,000 goal, and has 33 days to go. If you’re quick, you can nab one for €299 (£217). It will ship in August next year.
