By the end of June, more than 1,000 people have applied for the chance to test the light that’s being developed by the Australian company Rock Lights.
The project is a part of Rock Lights’ new $500 million program to build a range of lighting products to help car owners in a wide range of environments.
“We’re trying to make the light system more intuitive and the product more accessible to the general public,” Rock Lights marketing manager and senior product developer Steve O’Neill told USA Today.
“It’s more accessible and it’s going to be more versatile, so it’s an excellent way to take your car from the garage to the track and from the track to the road.”
In a nutshell, the product will be an easy-to-use, easy-access, flexible lighting system that can be connected to your vehicle’s lighting system.
The company says the system is able to provide an array of light sources ranging from two to 10 watts.
The main difference between the Rock Lights lighting system and similar products is that it can be controlled via smartphone apps.
“The most important part about the Rock Lighting system is that you don’t need a complicated computer app to control it,” O’Neil said.
“So you don: a) use your smartphone and it will control the light, b) tap it to adjust the light and adjust it further, and c) use it as a light meter and it can measure how much light is coming in and out of the light source and then adjust the brightness of the bulb accordingly.”
For example, a light sensor could control a range from the light’s intensity to the light being bright, or even the intensity of the LEDs in the light.
As well as the standard lighting and dimming capabilities, the system also supports smart parking features.
“We have a range that’s very flexible and has some of the features that you need in your garage,” O`Neill said.
“It’s a smart parking system and it supports the parking meter that you’re using, the smart lock, the remote control and the garage door.”
The Rock Lights system will be available to the public for $150 to $250.
