A project for a new gesture-controlled smart lamp launched on Kickstarter this week.

The lamp has been named the Roome.

According to the developers of the lamp, it is the world’s first lamp to use gesture controls, turning on when it detects motion, and turning off when it doesn’t.

Personally, I’m not to sure about it being the “world’s first”, maybe the world’s first to have such a reach on its detection, but the lamp that turns on and off via a hand wave on my Gran’s old desk says otherwise in terms of a general motion controlled lamp.

But that doesn’t really matter, what matters is the Roome not only looks cool (similar to a mushroom) but also offers up some call functions for automating light.

Check it out via the video below, and make sure to hit up the source link just below that to back the project and find out more.
