Dyena has designed and created a new modular lighting system called the Helios Touch that provides a new and very unique lighting system for your wall.
The Helios Touch project has this week launched via Kickstarter to raise the £60,000 the team requires to take their unique modular lighting concept into production. Watch the demonstration video below to see how you can use your hand as a brush to easily turn on the right amount of lighting when required.
The development team at Dyena based in the UK explain a little more about the inspiration behind the modular lighting system and its features and functionality.
Helios is a modular touch screen wall light. This design allows the user to effectively swipe where they want or need light, turning the walls into a canvas for illumination using their hand as the brush. The combination of modularity and the lighting controls equals a product that can be completely tailored by the user. This product provides the opportunity for a lighting solution that is specific to each and every environment.
This product consists of multiple plastic hexagons that can be connected together via magnets and interlocking patterns to form a touch screen wall light. The magnets that form the physical connection between components also allow the electricity to pass through from one piece to another.
With the power running through the product, each individual component is turned on and off via a capacitive touch sensor incorporated into each piece. The underlying idea for the product is to give the user the ability to turn the interior architecture of a space into the light source. It gives potential for the user to just swipe the surface of the wall and it will illuminate the path of their touch. Turning the interior architecture into a canvas for illumination with the users hand as the brush.
