Express your mood and brighten up your walls!
Be it in corridors, offices, children's bedrooms, living rooms or kitchens, Helios Touch is a new lighting system with safe, low voltage LED panels that offer numerous possibilities for creating a new kind of illuminating display on your walls.
Designed by James Vanderpant, the modular touch screen wall light started its way to success as a noticable product from a student exhibition, where it was picked up by Dyena Ltd. in order to make a sales-ready product.
How does it work? Multiple plastic hexagons are connected together with magnets, located around the edges of the product - these allow electricity to pass between the panels - and interlocking patterns. This way, together, they form a touch screen wall light, which can be arranged any way the user wants. As the user swipes his or her hand across, shapes are created and individual panels light up or are turned off. With a simple, gentle touch of a finger, one can create an illuminating pattern of his or her own design, depending on the mood.
By sticking together as many hexagons as one likes, the final installation is a one of a kind, personal creation. The customer can purchase as many units as they need, but should be aware of the fact that currently up to 105 tiles can be joined on the same power circuit.
Creators say they wanted their product to "reduce the energy consumption for lighting in commercial buildings with a more tailored and customized light fixture, thus reducing energy wastage with an attitude of 'as much as you need'."
With 33 days to go, Helios Touch Modular Lighting System can still be pre-ordered via the product's Kickstarter page.
