Igloledset: Colorful Leds Controlled by Your iPhone or iPad

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  November 17, 2010

As we all know the saying “there’s an app for that“, here’s yet another new use for your iOS devices – remote-controlled LED lights.


The iGloLEDset is a special color-changing LED light set which can be remotely operated using your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad. The kit includes a 16.4 foot-long strip with 120 colorful LEDs, along with a Wi-fi controller unit. Once you install the iGloLED app on your Apple gadget, you’ll be able to choose from hundreds of color pattern sequences, or create your own.

You can even use your gadget’s accelerometer and motion controls to create an ad-hoc light show. See the iGloLEDset system in action in the videos below:

Cool, no. The biggest problem I see is that the set is quite expensive, starting at $299(USD) for the basic kit. You can grab the full set over at Amazon. Additional 16.4 foot light strips will set you back an additional $199, and for another $39 you can grab a 12-volt inverter which will let you use the whole rig inside your car.
