The AI light has an artificial intelligence brain that senses space through five different sensors. Using a biologically inspired mechanism, this structure morphs and generates new behaviours according to your personal space.
When you first invite it into your home, you have to let it get accustomed to its new environment. Once it is relaxed, the training can then begin. It has five senses that track changes in its environment and slowly it develops a set of behaviours that indicate a new character to each light. The user is also able to interact with the light by playing with it through sounds, light and movements. This smart structure may behave in unpredictable ways if moved to an unfamiliar space.
One of the revolutionary aspects in this project is the introduction of the notion of ‘training’ over ‘controlling’. In this product there are no buttons and no remote control. The product will develop it behaviours by personal training and a natural interface.
The Ai light was first exposed at London design week 2007 at Rabih Hage Gallery in Slone Avenue
