Nanoleaf will turn your home into a disco with its new light panels
Forget wallpaper; why not coat your walls in pulsating smart lights instead?
If you want to ensure every visitor to your home is well and truly dazzled, you can’t really go wrong with Nanoleaf's modular light panels. Not only can you change their colour and lighting patterns from your phone or even with your voice, the DIY nature of the panels means you can piece them together however you want, whether that be as a winding light snake slithering from room to room or a spiral wall feature overlooking the dinner table.
Now, Nanoleaf is taking things a step further with the latest variation of its popular light panels. Announced at CES 2018 this week, a new square-shaped version of the panels will soon be available, with a host of extra features making the new line even more versatile than its triangle-shaped predecessor.
The new panels will each be fully touch-sensitive, allowing you to turn them on and off, change their brightness settings and adjust their colours by simply tapping them. Music-syncing and motion detection will also be built into the upgraded base station, with the ability to pulse lighting patterns to the beat of a song or adjust lighting settings when someone walks past.
Additionally, true lighting aficionados will be glad to hear that the previous connection limit of 30 Nanoleaf panels per base station has been increased dramatically, with the ability to connect up to 1000 square-shaped panels to a single base station. So if you want to cover every wall, floor and ceiling in your house with touch-sensitive light panels, you probably can.
Pricing and a definitive release date have yet to be announced for Nanoleaf's new light panels, but we expect them to be available sometime this year.
