Imagine a future where lights are not fixed to the ceiling but follow us wherever we are. In this colorful world we enjoy lighting, which is designed to go along with the moment, the activity, our feelings, and our outfit. Halo is a wearable lighting device created to explore this scenario. Different than architectural lighting this personal lighting device aims to illuminate and present its user. Halo changes the wearer’s appearance with the ease of a button click, similar to adding a filter to a photograph. It can also changed one’s view, brightening up a rainy day, or coloring a gray landscape. Halo can react to activities and adapt based on context. It is a responsive window between the wearer and her surroundings.
A ring of LEDs frames the wearer’s head and illuminates her face and shoulders. A mobile app controls Halo over Bluetooth. The hardware is made of light weight aluminum and can be shaped to the user’s body. It is comfortable to wear and can be adjusted to different angles, either resting in front of the face or around the head.
