The L8 SmartLight is an intuitive device that connects via Bluetooth to your smartphone, and emits lighting in the form of your surroundings taken directly from your device or computer. So for example, say you receive a Facebook notification, the box would light up with an 'f' symbol.

You can control the color of the LED lights, as well as the tone and intensity at the back of the device. Another distinct feature is that instead of communicating with sound, such as an alarm clock, this device solely communicates with symbols, which is ideal for the hearing impaired. The L8 SmartLight is also portable and easy to carry around, as it is lightweight, small in size, and wireless.

The programmers have left the SDK code open for anyone to develop and create new applications, accessories and features. By doing this they are encouraging product innovations.
