KALOS is an interactive lighting installation designed and built for the 2012 GLOW event during my time at Philips Research. GLOW is an annual light festival in Eindhoven. KALOS is a giant kaleidoscope made using 36 Philips hue bulbs. the mirrors around the core triangle replicate the triangle into a huge “virtual” ball when peeking around the corners of the front triangle.
Visitors were able to choose a color and location on the central triangle to see “their light effect” happen in the sculpture. They could do this by connecting to a public wifi where their would get a website with UI automatically pushed (like what happens in a hotel)
