Misfit Introduces Connected, Color-Changing Bolt Light Bulb

The way we choose to illuminate our spaces has changed dramatically in our lifetime. As a young adult my life seemed divided between the harsh fluorescent office lights and warm incandescent lights of home. The last couple of decades have seen rapid changes in the type, efficiency and flexibility of lighting, getting ‘smart’ lighting solutions such as Bolt light bulb from Misfit.

Misfit Bolt Light Bulb

Bolt is a wirelessly-connected light bulb that lets you personalize your home lighting to create what the company calls beautiful ‘lightscapes’. With a stunning sunrise simulation, Bolt also makes getting out of bed a brighter experience. Transform your environment with millions of colors and combinations available through the Misfit Home mobile app. Bolt works directly with your phone using the new Misfit Home app, no complicated hubs or setup needed.

From the company:

With Bolt, users can transform their environment by choosing from millions of color combinations, or create beautiful lightscapes from premade scenes or scenes based on photos they choose. Bolt can also be used in combination with Misfit’s sleep sensing products to gently wake the user with a sunrise simulation during her lightest stage of sleep.

Bolt can be controlled with the Misfit Home app, to be released on iOS and Android. Bolt is compatible with the sleep sensing functionality of Misfit Shine, Flash, and Beddit, letting users wake up in their lightest stage of sleep. Users will also be able to control Bolt using Logitech’s Harmony Home remote and app.

Bolt is available for pre-order from Misfit.com now, for $49.99 with an expected mid-February ship date.

As an avid gamer and gadget-junkie I was constantly asked for my opinions on new technology, which led to writing small blurbs ... and eventually becoming a reviewer many years ago. My family is my biggest priority in life, and they alternate between loving and tolerating my gaming and gadget hobbies ... but ultimately benefits from the addition of technology to our lives!
