If you follow me on twitter, you probably have noticed me getting excited about the previously launched Philips hue system.
Well, I finally got my hands on a starter-kit which comes with 3 bulbs and most importantly a zigbee to ethernet bridge making it possible to control the entire system from pretty much anywhere or anything.
In addition, and I love that Philips did this, other smart-link capable products such as living colors and living whites can be integrated as well. (whoo!)
Naturally, I didn’t waste much time and started playing with some ideas right away, one of which is demoed in the video above.
What you see is 3 living colors units lighting my living room while Airfoil is streaming music to an AppleTV.
Playback is controlled with an iPad mini running an experimental build of Reemote that is capable of talking to the hue bridge and therefore all the connected lights.
When tracks are changing, Reemote takes color information from the new tracks cover-art and lights the room accordingly.
Like what you see ?
You should probably follow me on twitter.
