CES 2018: Nanoleaf Creates New Square-Shaped Light Panels With Touch Controls

by John_A

After introducing a HomeKit controller in the shape of a dodecahedron, Nanoleaf recently announced the next generation of its popular triangle-shaped Nanoleaf Light Panels. The new panels don’t have a name or a price yet, but the company revealed that they are square and include a few feature additions and improvements from the previous generation (via CNET).

Each square panel will include a touch sensitive surface, so you can turn them on or off, dim or increase their brightness, or change to another color preset just by tapping or sliding your finger on them. The base station for the square panels is also said to come with a microphone and motion sensor that can detect motion and alter the lighting flow of the panels as you walk by, for example.

Nanoleaf has also greatly increased the maximum limit of panels you can connect together. Instead of 30 panels able to connect to one base station (the limit on the triangular panels), up to 1,000 square panels can be outfitted together at once. Still, for every 60 panels strung together you will need a power booster — set to be sold by Nanoleaf — in order to “maintain optimal brightness.”

Nanoleaf said that it plans to keep the new square panels “as affordable as possible,” but the company isn’t confirming a price range at CES. The new panels are expected to launch at some point later in 2018.
