Goldee Wants to Be the Nest for Lights As Your Smart Light Controller

Imagine a light system in your house that is intelligent enough to cater to you and your needs throughout the day. When you wake up, the lights start to gently turn on in the morning mimicking a sunrise. And at night, when you have to get up to go to the washroom, the lights turn on just enough to illuminate the path to get you there without bumping your knee. 

Goldee, the smart light controller which just launched pre-orders today, wants to make this happen. The sleek, Apple like design wall mounted controller has been constructed to easily replace an existing light switch. 

Goldee does require that lights use smart bulbs (or light bulbs which are Wi-Fi connected), like those from Philips Hue or LIFX. And one controller for each room would be required.

Goldee can shut off the lights it is connected to when no one is home or contrarily turn them on when someone enters the house. It also has the ability to gradual turn on and off lights to ease into sleep or wake up and start your day.

A great security feature is the ability for Goldee to simulate your presence when you are gone. All of these settings can be configured via the Goldee unit or via the Goldee smartphone app which is supported on Android and iPhone.

Goldee is currently running its own crowdfunding campaign off its site beginning today and has raised over $12,000 from 29 backers so far. The campaign ends in 25 days and they are aiming to raise $100,000 in total.

Goldee is selling three packages ranging from $249 all the way up to over $1600. The lower package assumes that you have the smart bulbs already that are needed to make Goldee work. The most popular kit so far is the Goldee Room Pack which comes with the Goldee controller and 3 LIFX smart bulbs for $449.

Backers of Goldee can expect to see their light controllers shipped Summer of 2014.

SkyCall Parrot AR Drone Will Guide You To Your Next Class

If you are new to campus, and sometimes even if you aren’t, finding your way to class can be a nightmare. 

Well in the future, all you have to do is call a Drone to help you find your way. This is the vision of SkyCall part of a larger development program that is currently underway at Senseable City Lab at MIT.

The premise for SkyCall is to use an autonomous flying quadcopter as a personal tour guide to operate in one of mankind’s most difficult and disorientating labyrinths: MIT campus. 

This is how it works:

  • You call the Drone using the smartphone app
  • The Drone Arrives
  • You Tell the Drone Where you are Going
  • The Drone Guides You
  • Along the way you can press pause or more information  on the app 
  • The Drone will even wait or you if you are too far behind
  • The Drone will successfully lead you to your destination

SkyCall may just be an experiment but I can totally see real-life applications in the tourism, navigation and travel sector leveraging SkyCall’s learnings.

What do you think? Would you call a Drone to help you find your way?

This emergency help button could help seniors lead more active lives
The elderly are more prone to succumbing to illnesses and health conditions, and therefore require greater attention to ensure they’re ok, and we’ve already seen innovations such as the Oxitone watch, which automatically alerts doctors when users begin to have heart trouble. Now the Amulyte is a wearable ‘assistance needed’ button that helps any senior to let family and caregivers know if they’re in trouble, wherever they are. READ MORE…

The number of wearables sold globally nearly tripled between 2011 and 2012, but the market is still tiny when compared to smartphones. Berg, however, predicts 64 million wearable device shipments in 2017.
