Philips Releases 16 Million Colors

Posted by Sheila Franklin Categories: Household, Misc. Tech

Philips MoodlightPhilips has designed a moodlight that can create 16 million colors. The Living Color LED can be used on ceilings or floors and comes with a remote so that you can alter its hue whenever the mood strikes you. At a size of 28.8 x 22.5 x 24.4 cm and a weight of 553 g, the company claims it has an “extremely long” life with low energy usage. We wonder if that really means long enough to find all of those colors. It’s available for €149.00 (~$211.00,) but only in Germany at this point. Feel free to pick one up for us if you plan on visiting the country this Oktoberfest.

Litebook May Relieve SAD

Posted by Sheila Franklin Categories: Internet, Misc. Tech, Science

LitebookIf you live in an area with long winters and tend to hibernate, or if you spend most of your time in the basement with your ‘puter, you might suffer from SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder). Symptoms include depression, low energy, irritabilty, carb cravings (!), low concentration ability, insomnia, even social withdrawal and reduced libido.

The Litebook may be the answer to your problem. It uses bright light therapy which involves regular (usually daily) exposure to an artificial light source at an accepted therapeutic intensity (> 2,500 lux). Exposure duration and distance from the source are set within certain limits.

Specifications:

  • Size: 6” x 5” x 1” (15cm x 12.5cm x 2.5cm)
  • Weight: 8oz. (225g)
  • Impact-resistant ABS plastic injection-molded case
  • Operates on AC (110-240v) and DC power with optional Adapter
  • Low power consumption
  • No UV Radiation
  • UL certified
  • Power adapter cord length 6’ (180cm)

The Litebook will become available this October at a MSRP of £199.00 (~$375.00). A battery recharger is also available for £235.00 (~$442.00). Occasional mild side-effects may occur, including headaches, a ‘stinging’ sensation in the eyes, and nausea, but we think that beats a 20-bags-of-Cheetos-a-day habit.
