Philips seems to be quite keen on bringing mood/ornamental lighting (as opposed to illuminating) into everyday life – from their Ambilight Television sets to the Lumalive textiles, it does seem as though their chief has been to one too many musical fountains or something.
Shown above is a rather amazing application of light quite literally as paint. A glowing wand first dips into a pot of colored-light, and the child can then begin to draw on the wall. Painting with light – isn’t that some sort of childhood fantasy coming through?
Here is a press-release site of some of the other items that were shown in the Philips Simplicity Event last October, featuring many other similarly intuitive and yet imaginative applications of lights and colors.
