Can this smart system bring a little light into your life?

Info//

Nanoleaf https://nanoleaf.me/en £179.99, $199.99, 199,99 € Compatibility: iOS 12.0 or later

Nanoleaf is smart lighting with a difference. Instead of a light bulb that plugs into your regular lamp fittings, or a strip light you can bend around or hang on your furniture, these are shapes you can link together into exciting wall-mounted designs. So far, Nanoleaf has released hexagons, squares, small triangles, and standard triangles, with sides of 23cm/nine inches in length. These triangles have sharp corners, but the ‘lit’ area is rounded for a smoother effect when in use.

In this starter kit you get nine regular triangular panels, ten connectors to link the shapes together, a controller unit that clips onto the side of one of the panels, sticky pads to hold them to your wall, and a mains plug to power your finished design. You can buy additional panels if you wish to expand your masterpiece, and even link panels of differing shapes.

Reloading…Comic Book Heroes

Superheroes have been a staple of entertainment for decades, since Tim Burton’s 1989 Batman (the caped crusader hadn’t added ‘The’ to his monicker quite yet!) took the army of masked avengers from the printed page to the big screen. From lunchboxes to action figures and clothing to tie-in video games, superheroes are a genre to themselves. Mimicking the movies that inspired them, while many are treasured by fans the majority of tie-in games ride the wave of hype and are then forgotten. In the case of the games covered here, they’re deleted from the App Store as well as our memories, so we thought we would go back and look at these lost games to see if they can get our Spidey senses tingling.
