L8 Smartlight

Obsessively check your Facebook, email, Twitter and the like for new notifications/messages? L8’s got you covered. Its 8 by 8 grid of LEDs displays simple, eye catching images that silently notify you of what’s going on right now in your digital world via a wireless bluetooth connection from either your computer or smartphone. Other features include built-in temperature, proximity and luminosity sensors, a back mounted ultra-bright super LED, and a rechargeable lithium battery for on-the-go applications. We’re most excited to see what the community will do with it thanks to its fully open nature.
