If a couple of entrepreneurs are able to raise enough money, Philips’ stranglehold on the color-changing ambient lighting market will soon be over! Designed by Ken Ouyang the Black Diamond is technically just another iPhone dock, but manages to set itself apart from the billions of others already on the market with a frosted, faceted sphere design that uses an accompanying iPhone app to create a continuously changing pattern of colors.
First and foremost the Black Diamond will serve as a colorful art piece sitting on your desk or bedside table, but other functions will also be available including voice controlled dynamic color effects, wake up and sleep functions and the ability to even let you know when a message from a friend has arrived based on an assigned color scheme. It’s a clever use of the iPhone while it’s sitting unused for syncing and/or charging, and if you think you’d like to help them reach their goal of $30,000 then head on over to CKIE where you can make an investment.
