Come along and see the new invention by Mark Pesce – meet Light by Moore’s Cloud - a light that is as smart as your phone. Find out how mobile developers are a critical part of the application ecosystem for the internet of things.
Mark Pesce is an inventor, writer, entrepreneur, educator and broadcaster.
A few months back Mark invented something deceptively simple: a lamp with a LAMP stack. Light by Moore’s Cloud creates delightful, smart illumination with 52 independently-controlled LEDs, each capable of two million colours, all powered by a small-but-capable LINUX computer, connected to the Internet via WiFi.
This means that the internet of things is here for the average consumer and they can have connected intelligent lights at home with Light by Moore’s Cloud.
It also means that web and mobile developers can use the open interface to create beautiful and useful applications for consumers to use with their Light by Moore’s Cloud
The Moore’s Cloud team are running a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign to enable manufacturing and production of the light – more information at moorescloud.com/kickstarter.
