Lume Dice is again on Kickstarter with a smartphone-friendly gentle supply


When Lume Dice first crashed into the world’s consciousness, they did so with an $80 smartphone-controlled, waterproof gentle aimed on the GoPro-loving excessive sports activities market. As we speak, the corporate launched a Kickstarter marketing campaign for Life Lite, its followup. Life Lite is 33 % much less vibrant, but in addition half the value and half the dimensions. The brand new addition is geared toward individuals capturing reside video with smartphones.

“We hoped this was going to achieve success,” mentioned Lume Dice’s founder and CEO Mornee Sherry in an interview final week. “And the unique Lume Dice is now accessible on the market in additional than 45 nations.”

The Lume Cube Life Lite can still be used with GoPros, of course, but its slightly thinner form factor means it's better suited to smartphone photographers -- and people who want to be able to throw a small light in their pocket or bag

The Lume Dice Life Lite can nonetheless be used with GoPros, in fact, however its barely thinner type issue means it’s higher suited to smartphone photographers — and individuals who need to have the ability to throw a small gentle of their pocket or bag

The unique Lume Dice turned a darling of utmost sports activities followers all around the world, however the cube-shaped gentle was too large and too expensive for among the firm’s clients. The response turned the Life Lite. Waterproof to 30 ft (10m) and outputting as much as 1,000 lumens, the sunshine isn’t as high-spec as the unique Lume Dice (which went to 100 ft and output 1,500 lumens), however at half the dimensions and half the value, it would simply be the right match for individuals who have totally different wants from their lighting conditions.

“There’s a little bit of a distinction in philosophy between the lights,” Sherry tells me. “Lume Dice is virtually indestructible. You may run over it with a truck if you need. It was designed to be match with the GoPro cameras, that are notoriously unhealthy in low gentle. The acute sports activities angle meant that the unique Lume Dice needed to be extremely sturdy and tremendous vibrant.”

The photographic panorama has modified quite a bit since 2014, nevertheless: The variety of individuals filming and streaming with their smartphones has gone by means of the roof. Small cameras are a lot happier in low gentle than they was, and the relentless deal with indestructibility is much less necessary to the present technology of filmmakers.
