NEC Concept LED Ceiling Light With Integrated Speaker
NEC Lighting have combined an LED ceiling light with an integrated wireless speaker, which can be controlled by your smartphone via an Android app.
It uses Bluetooth to stream music from the phone to the speaker, and the same app can also be used to control various aspects of the lighting, such as brightness and color temperature. It's also possible to create effects with synchronized sound and light.
"Light fittings are in the middle of rooms, and we've used that fact to design this revolutionary, totally new product. This system enables light and sound to spread from the center of a room to the entire space. It also enables the user to control the effects with a smartphone."
This demo system has three preset modes, which combine light and sound effects. Users can choose Active, Natural, or Relaxed mode to match their mood.
"We're still developing this system, with the aim of releasing it this year. Here, the light has a wooden frame to match the interior atmosphere. But we're also considering other versions, including ultra-modern acrylic panels, traditional Japanese designs, and simple globes."
