Philips is adding new products to its Hue lineup of iOS controlled LED lighting. The new products are “LightStrips”, 6.6-foot strips of LED tape that can be used to go around and highlight fixtures in the home, and “Bloom”, a portable lamp powered by an LED bulb.
As with the original Hue, both products can be controlled with a free iOS app to change features such as color and brightness, with an available output of 16 million possible colors. Both products also require the Philips Hue wireless bridge, which comes as a part of the Philips Hue starter pack.
LivingColors Bloom, is a compact lighting fixture that can be positioned on a floor, shelf, or anywhere else in a room. It will bounce your choice of 16 million colors off any surface.
LightStrips are 6.6-foot LED strips that can be cut to size, and include an adhesive backing, to allow it to be easily mounted under a counter, bed or inside cabinets.
The Philips Hue LightStrips go for $89.95 and the Philips Hue Bloom will set you back $79.95. The Philips Hue Starter Pack which includes 3 LED bulbs and the Hue wireless bridge currently sells for $199.95. All Hue products will initially be sold exclusively through Apple Retail Stores and the Apple Online Store.
The Philips Hue iOS app is available FREE in the App Store. [DIRECT LINK]
