The 'KNBOR' is a smart ceiling lamp that can turn any house into a completely connected palace. The overhead light offers a host of technologically advanced features, the most notable of which is its ability to act as a router, extending Wi-Fi to every room in a house.

While multiple routers placed strategically around one's home is certainly enough to extend the signal, that placement can take a frustrating amount of trial and error, and purchasing multiple routers quickly runs up the price of the endeavor. Since every room needs a ceiling lamp, the KNBOR is a cost-efficient way to spread out one's Wi-Fi signal.

Beyond extending the Internet, the KNBOR lamp has IFTTT connectivity, turning any home into a smart home. For example, the KNBOR can be set to recognize when no one is home and then automatically itself turn off.
