Based on open source technology and programming, LUZ is a self-made lighting project designed in northern Europe for all those who are physically and psychologically affected by the lack of sun or daylight. This mesmerizing luminaire is connected to a light and temperature color sensor which modifies the light-colors of the lamp depending on weather conditions. A new internet platform will be created uploading the IDE Arduino code so that people worldwide may share their emotional opinions about light and chromaticism….(read more)
