#IFA18 – If you were to take a look at home office setups or desk setup videos on YouTube, many of them seem to run a common theme – LED ambient lighting. Most of the time the lights used are those from Philips’ Hue range, but for those looking for something different, you might have heard of Nanoleaf.
The company had initially debuted their LED panels back in IFA 2017 where it came in triangle shapes which allowed users to come up with some interesting shapes and designs. However for those who are looking for more “regular’ shapes, not to worry as this year at IFA 2018, Nanoleaf unveiled the Canvas which are square shaped LED panels.
These are touch-enabled panels which means that by touching them, users will be able to do different things with them, such as activate the panels, change the brightness levels, and even change the colors. The addition of touch is a new feature that was missing from last year’s model, and they are also HomeKit enabled which means that users can command them using Siri and incorporate them for use with other HomeKit products.
In terms of pricing, the Nanoleaf Canvas will be priced starting at $199. This will be the starter kit which will include 9 panels, with plans to make them available come 1st of December, 2018.
