Smart bulb that can adjust itself based on your behavior

Smart bulb that can adjust itself based on your behavior


Stack Lighting has unveiled what it calls a truly smart light bulb; the idea is the brainchild of CEO Neil Joseph, formerly of Tesla, and other engineers on his team. The idea, they say, is to provide automated lighting control in the home and at work that simulates to some extent the natural outdoor environment. In the morning, for example, light from the sun is soft as it creeps over the horizon—it becomes less soft as the morning wears on and eventually grows bright and at times harsh. Conversely, in the evening, the light outside grows soft again as the sun begins to set, before going dark altogether We are naturally programmed to wake slowly, sharpen as we go, then slowly work our way back to a comfortable sleep. Conventional lighting systems don't offer that, they add, even other smart light systems, because they need to be constantly monitored and adjusted. Plus, they don't allow for changes to the softness of the light that is emitted. The team says that the Alba is different because it does change brightness and harshness levels, and because it does so automatically based on the unique behavior patterns of the people that live or work there. And because it also has motion sensing it can automatically turn off lights that are not in use, cutting electricity bills.
