Luxi For All Brings Professional Light Meters To Everyone

Luxi For All turns your mobile device into a professional-quality incident light meter

PALO ALTO, CALIFORNIA JULY 1, 2014 - So far, it appears that one of the most striking cultural trends of the early 21st Century has been the widespread democratization of media. A small group of product designers in Silicon Valley noticed this trend, and realized that for all of the ease with which we are all now empowered to distribute media, there still exists a wide gulf between the production tools of “professionals” and those available to the general public.

Having identified the incident light meter as one such tool — being far too expensive in its previous form s— these product designers brought Luxi to market. The first incident light meter attachment for smartphones, it costs a mere fraction of what those traditional light meters cost. After great success in empowering users of iPhones with incident light metering, Extrasensory Devices changes the game once again with Luxi For All, an evolution of the existing Luxi product which will work with any smartphone…any tablet…even smartphones in protective cases. It’s truly the first light meter for everyone.

Luxi For All is now in the midst of a successful Kickstarter campaign, with nearly $50,000 pledged by nearly 2,000 backers as of this writing. It comes ready for use with any iOS device, when paired with any of several free software applications. An Android application is in development, and will be available before Luxi For All ships in August. The campaign can be found on Kickstarter here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/jamesflynn/luxi-for-all-incident-light-meter-for-mobile-devic

That's a brillant idea! Is there any test published somewhere about the device calibration, that's still the most important point...
