GENIE

Spring 2012

An interface for easy selection and creative control of color changing lamp fixtures in the home, using the analogy of taking a snapshot to select them. Attributes such as color, brightness, and scheduling can be controlled individually or as a group of lights at once. The system uses an IR filter switcher on the phone to capture IR blobs pulsating from inside the lamps.
