With increasing frequency, we’re seeing light bulbs gaining functionality. Many LED bulbs, for example, have an expected lifespan of 20 or more years. There are also many lighting systems that integrate specific types of bulbs or fixtures with lighting controls, moods, motions, and natural daylighting.
TEAGUE Labs‘ Filo takes it one step further by introducing light bulb module inserts which will transform your light into a voice-activated digital assistant, baby monitor, microphone, audio speaker, or security system.
The bulb’s shape and array permits users to switch from spot to full room coverage. The bulb also outputs full spectrum light for more circadian rhythm friendly options through the day and evening.
Unlike many lighting systems, Filo works with your existing sockets and switches; simply screw in a new light bulb. “The modules are plugged into the bulb, which provides the module with power and an interface to control the light.”
Depending on its function, the module can affect the light’s behaviour or operate independently. If the connected module needs to stay on even with the light turned off, it has its own battery to keep it running.
Would you give Filo a try?
