Philips Ambilight technology is said to improve perceived contrast and reduce eyestrain. Well now you can try a similar technology on your PC’s monitor. Smartbytes’ Ambient Reality Effects is a compact device designed to mount to the back of your monitor and produce colored background light on your surrounding walls. The system uses an array of red, green and blue LEDs to work its magic.

Ambient Reality Effects LED Backlight

It’s said to be compatible with most Windows applications, and provides a highly configurable software interface which allows you to either set colors manually or to let the application automatically decide the best colors to output.

The standard model includes a single bar of LEDs, the USB controller, software and power supply for 165 EUR (appx. $211 USD.) Additional LED bars run 55 EUR (appx. $70 USD.) A single controller can handle up to 4 LED bars.

Can you say patent infringement?
