Philips creates first 3D printed LED smart lamp
- 28 March 2014
LONDON: Philips has launched an innovative new range of smart LED lights, including the world’s first 3D printed smart lamp.
Philips, the global leader in lighting and a member of The Climate Group, has released three new smart lighting products, including a breakthrough bright white-only LED bulb which is controllable with a smart phone or tablet.
The wireless lighting system, which allows owners to dim or alter the lamp’s light through an app and is compatible with devices such as the jawbone bracelet, sets a new benchmark for smart home lighting.
The company has also created the world’s first 3D-printed smart LED lights in two unique styles, that were created in collaboration with famous designers WertelOberfell and Strand+Hvass.
Using the connected apps, users can control infinite lighting effects of the 3D-printed luminaire, which is fully compatible with the Philips Hue range of bulbs, lamps, apps and switches.
The company also announced the launch of a clever battery-free wireless light switch which is called 'the hue tap'.
Harry Verhaar, Senior Director Energy and Climate Change, Philips Lighting, said: “With the world rapidly moving towards efficient, connected lighting, we are maximizing a range of important benefits. Connected LED lighting not only achieves significant energy savings and carbon footprint reductions, but most of all maximizes customer benefits by simply enabling people to create any atmosphere they desire. The future of innovative, low carbon lighting can helps us on our path to create the future we want for our planet.”
Ben Ferrari, Director of Partnerships, The Climate Group, commented: "Business drives the innovation we urgently need in technologies and markets for a better future. We support today’s corporate leaders like Philips, who know that the climate challenge can be turned into an opportunity to secure long-term prosperity in a low carbon economy."
The new Hue range will be on display at the Philips booth at Light and Building show in Frankfurt from March 31-April 4, 2014.
