As we keep on accelerating our digital connections and time journey we tend to approach the speed of light. On the other side, light is becoming a material in itself. Designers are creating new devices and interfaces through the projection of rays, merging medicinal use and seamless technology altogether. We will use light as a way to face the dematerialisation of things, re-introducing the importance of mood and senses and introducing new every day healthcare habits towards our eyes due to their daily exposure to blue lights.
Based in Shoreditch, East London, Chromayoga is a studio proposing a new approach to practising yoga by combining light and color therapy. Projected lights are supposed to improve our amount of melatonin and restore our circadian rhythms which has been proved to be lower since we are more exposed to blue light due to our everyday screens. The studio also use scent and sound experiences to make an immersive sensory state during the sessions.
Philips, the world lighting company leader has announced in march 2018 a new shift : they will fully integrate the use of the LiFi technology in their products ranges.
“The visible light spectrum is an untapped resource with a large bandwidth suitable for the stable simultaneous connection of a vast array of IoT devices.”Olivia Qiu, chief innovation officer of the company
