LiFX, the connected lighting manufacturer famous for its line of hubless light bulbs has announced a pair of new products launching in October of this year. According to Digital Trends, LiFX will be releasing an updated version of the company’s light strip specifically tailored for behind a television installation. A new candelabra style of light bulb is also coming soon, which will help to fill a much needed void in the small smart light bulb space.
Both upcoming products will incorporate the company’s “Polychrome Technology” which allows them to emit multiple colors at once, according to LiFX. This means that the candelabra shaped bulb can output a color such as red on one side, and another different color on the other. Special effects, such as decorative flickering, such as mimicking a candle are also enabled by the technology. While we are unsure of specific applications where the two color output would be beneficial, the effects are certainly interesting, and we look forward to seeing them in action.
The LiFX Z TV Light Strip is schedule to be released in October, and will retail for $70. The Candle Color light bulb is also slated to be released in the same month and will have an MSRP of $45.
