Twinkly, the Christmas lights of the future


Twinkly, an Italian startup that brought Christmas decorations in the Internet of Things world, just started a Kickstarter campaign.

The lights are state of the art LEDs, product of a relevant study on materials and hardware/software components, which let you choose animations, color, brightness and effects by simply using a smartphone or another connected device.

They are designed for a quick and intuitive use: once distributed on the tree, the light effects can be managed through an app, available for free on both iOS and Android. Thanks to an innovative trademarked software, through the smartphone’s camera, the app can map every LED singularly, resulting in effects never seen before. Some effects are preset in the device’s memory, but the gallery can be enriched by downloading upgrades or designing a custom animation, directly inside the app.

Twinkly, after having a great success during its preview that took place at the Homi in Milan, has set the goal of obtaining 50.000 euros by November, in order to start the production of more items and distribute them in time for this Christmas. A 49 Euros donation ensures one of the first Twinkly, but the commercial price will be higher.
