LUNE By Cielux: An Artistically Crafted LED Mood Light

The Lune by Cielux is one of the most eye catching pieces of mood lighting. With its sleek circular body, bright and vivid colors wash around the curve in the most elegant way. A minimalistic light fixture that does it job in providing intimate home mood lighting. The yellow hue is idea for bedroom mood lighting, for a romantic night try switching the LUNE to red, or go with green or blue for a gathering with friends.

The Lune lamp is designed around complete simplicity. One of the features that stems from this is the single point touch pad. This is an invisible spot within the circle where you can adjust the light settings. There are seven color choices (red, green, blue, purple, white, teal, and yellow), two color speed fading modes and the brightness can be controlled.

The standard position of the LED lights (which consumer only 9 watts) points inwards on the curve, diffusing the light in a range of directions. This can be adjusted as the LED lights are attached to a twisting portion of the light fixture. So you can rotate the lights to change from home mood lighting to accent lighting focused onto a wall or painting.

The LUNE while providing mood lighting to set any backdrop, is a decorative piece in itself. This is why it is ranked above the common Philips mood lights. The LUNE LED mood light also comes at a more reasonable price: $150 on Amazon.

MONSTER Tron iPod Dock: Merging Sound, Lights and Technology

Not much has been highlighted on the amount of work that went into a number of side products made for the Tron movie. A number of high end headphones, a Playstation 3 charging station, and also an epic and futuristic iPod / iPhone docking station with speakers have been created with the same sleek designs as the movie.

The Tron Light Disk brings the movie’s lighting effects to life as it combines the beauty of sound, sight and style. It is an iPod dock that senses your music and synchronizes the lighting with it. There are 2 rings of lights that contain 80 individually controlled LED lights. These lights have a cinematic feel to them, flickering on when you start the iPod dock and trace the circular path of the display. The glowing of the soft blue and white light up speakers is authentic of the Tron world.

Tron iPhone Dock

There is also an iPod/iPhone app that integrates with the dock when plugged in. This app synchronizes graphics on the iPod/iPhone screen to the dock and the music. It can also be used to set an iPod alarm clock.

  • Also has a 3.5mm jack for input from other music sources
