Nanoleaf is recognized for creating pricey, but impressive, light-weight panels of several shapes and measurements that can be customized to demonstrate off your beloved colors, react to what is on your gaming computer’s display or established the scene for motion picture night time. Personally, I use some Nanoleaf panels in a dwelling automation set up that turns the square panels into a goal light-weight when I am viewing hockey. 

But when the panels are turned off, the off-white color would not necessarily mix in. On Thursday, Nanoleaf announced a new line of wise dwelling light-weight panels that transfer absent from what the organization is at the moment recognized for. 

The to start with product in the Nanoleaf Features line is the Wood Glance Hexagons, which, as the title implies, have a wooden grain search on their entrance. As an alternative of RBG lights, Nanoleaf has long gone with much more common white lighting, with selections ranging from 1500-4000K (interesting to heat light-weight). 

I’ve been tests the Wood Glance Hexagons for a couple of months, and whilst the wooden color would not match nearly anything in my business, I love the new approach. Even even though I knew the panels featured lights in each corner of the hexagon that could light-weight up or change light-weight temperature independently of a single yet another, it was not right until I installed the panels and turned them on for the to start with time that I realized how vital that function is.

By allowing each corner to light-weight up on its have, you can however get the exact same interactive emotion and outcomes of the much more colourful Shapes, Canvas or Mild Panels. 

I connected the panels to my HomeKit set up and linked them to my business light-weight change to flip on or off based on my overhead lights. There are a number of distinctive lighting scenes out there for the Features, each of which has a distinctive search. I picked the Calming Waterfall lighting selection, which makes use of several lights to mimic a waterfall of lights that transfer slowly but surely again and forth throughout the panels. 

There are a number of much more scenes that appear with Features, and you can make your have blend of lighting outcomes. 

Nanoleaf is taking orders for Features ideal now, with the base package priced at $299. That will get you almost everything you need to have to put in the involved seven panels. For $99 you can get an growth pack that adds yet another three panels, and also features almost everything you need to have to include them to your existing set up. Orders will start off transport today, but Nanoleaf has reported that stock is limited. If you never order prior to they promote out, Very best Acquire will have the new panels later this month.
