GreenWave Reality lights

GreenWave Reality is aiming to bring us the lightbulbs of the future with its new Connected Lighting Solution line-up of Wi-Fi-aware LED bulbs. These bulbs use a fraction of the power of the light bulbs that you're used to, and can be controlled from your smartphone or tablet immediately after being put into their sockets. You can also group a set of bulbs together to control them all with one command. You can even set up timed lighting on the bulbs individually, or as a group, for a nice set-it-and-forget-it configuration. If all that is too much for you, another great feature is that the setup is even motion sensitive, so you can have lights turn on in any room that someone enters. All in all, it's pretty neat. We're looking to get our review units in soon to give you a deeper look at GreenWave's lighting solution.

For this week’s lesson, the women got a little more one-on-one time with . It was the former supermodel’s job to show the ladies how to sell products without using their voices.

How can they make phone conversations seem exciting when the reader can’t hear them?

After weeks of lessons, runway shows and photo shoots, we finally got to “see” what the ladies of were made of tonight. Followers of the show know what that means: it was time for the Final 5 to go on their go-sees.

Before heading out on their journeys, the models met with Frederick Koster, the managing director of Touché Models. After explaining the evaluation process - the girls would be judged on their portfolios, their walks, their appearance and their personalities - Koster gave the women maps and directions. The goal was to meet as many designers in the allotted 4 hours as possible. If they did not make it back to the agency on time, they would automatically be disqualified.
