lumee duo

Nothing like a good dose of vanity… Via DPReview – Lumee Duo is an iPhone case with built-in illumination I can imagine that for some serious photographers, this will be quite interesting.  Amazing the brightness and quality LEDs can now achieve

3m daylight redirecting film

Via Architect Magazine, a very interesting concept from 3M to help reduce excessive sunlight glare in perimeter offices.  They’ve created a microprismatic window film that steers the light upward, along with a little diffusion to soften any highlights. Surely this

piri

I’ve already talked about the convergence of lighting, audio and video content systems in modern architectural projects.  Here is a new example, at the discrete scale of small retail. Piri is a new line from Sweden-based Nordic Light that combines

audi’s matrix laser headlights

Audi continues with it advanced R+D into projection headlights. Interesting – looks like they have a couple different ways to achieve the projection – one a is a digital mirror chip (sounds like Texas Instruments’ DLP tech) and a second

rohinni: update

Looks like Rohinni is making progress.  Congrats to them for their second coverage in FastCompany.  This article teases a bit more detail then what we knew from two years ago: They are apparently developing technologies to more accurately place the

laser rust removal

I will be adding this to my personal “Tony Stark’s workshop” wishlist… P-Laser and ESR Laser make industrial grade laser equipment for burning rust, grime, oil, etc. off of metal parts.  A heavy duty use of light…I would suggest some

plessey semiconductor

UK-based Plessey Semiconductor recently released an ultra-low profile LED module series named Orion that appears to combine chip-scale-packages with ultra-compact optics to create LED module assemblies under 1 cm in height, with beam angles as tight at 15 degrees. Its nice
