Lighty Is a Robotic Lighting System That Blends Darkness and Brightness with Style and Fun

Saturday, March 9th 2013. | Miscellaneous

How do you have fun with your room lightning system? Unless you’re a two years old kid who can get pretty curious by seeing a mere wall switch, you might not be able to do that. Luckily, some robotic engineers from Japan invent a system called Lighty which perfectly blends technology and, of course, fun. With this, you can configure the brightness and darkness of a certain room via a sleek interface which reminds me to Photoshop.

Coming with Lighty is an interactive pen display through which all controls to the robotic lights installed on the ceiling are made. To facilitate orientation changing on the said lights, each of them is held by two-axes gimbals. A camera is integrated into the system to help you monitor and view the changes you have made in real time.

On the right hand side of the interface is a selection of brush. Simply tap on one of them and apply it on the highlighted environment depicted on the left hand side. If you don’t believe that you can actually have fun with it, check out the video below. The Japanese dude looks all excited when demoing the system that is installed on a miniaturized room.

All the jokes aside, Lighty seems to be a more appropriate solution for large convention halls or dramatic orchestra stages. However, it’s also not impossible to install it to a personal living space. The engineers are currently working to move the system to an actual room instead of a miniature.
