The app available for both iPhone and Android phones and tablets allows individual control of the bulbs.
You can use the simple interface to control the colour and brightness using sliders and save the settings as “light scenes” that you can recall later, you can even set the colour from a photo or image displayed on your screen.
The app also includes pre-programmed “Light Recipes” based on Philips research into the biological effects of lighting that are designed specifically for relaxation, reading, concentrating and energizing.
People are asking why and does it really have a market treating it more as a gimmick or toy. God those people have no imagination or creativity! It is a toy, a luxury for our homes to make your neighbours shout “cool”.
I want one! Not to impress but because I like moods!
What I am confused about is if we now have this kind of connectivity with a simple light bulb then why do we need to “Dock” anything or attach audio leads to play music from portable devices such as a mobile phone or tablet PC’s?
We have seen Wi-Fi enabled clothing, toasters, and now light bulbs, what’s next?
