The Color Swing uses a sensor to change its light to match whatever color is under it, switching seamlessly between shades

Do you ever long for the perfect mood lighting? Italian product design company Digital Habits is helping you achieve your #ambiencegoals with a new light that adapts to the colors around it. The Color Swing uses an IR sensor to change to whatever color is below it, meaning that all you need to do to change the color is change what’s directly underneath the light.

Currently, the device is just a prototype, as the company told The Verge, “Let’s say it is an experiment with no specific practical applications.” But if you don’t want to wait that long to get the perfect lighting for your Instagram photos and you have the ambition to match, you can build your own version with an $8 Adafruit RGB color sensor, using any number of online tutorials.
