Apparently Vela is not a traditional fuel burning lantern, and you can use your smartphone to control it. If you’re curious, let’s go on checking the app-enabled Bluetooth LED lantern.
The Vela is an innovative app-enabled Bluetooth portable LED lantern designed for indoor and outdoor use. As we can see from the images, the LED lantern features sleek, minimal and portable design, and using built-in Bluetooth technology the wireless ambient lighting is able to pair with your smartphone in order that you can remotely control one or more Vela LED lanterns within a range of approx 30 ft, and its custom designed application not only allows you to dim or turn on/off the LED light, but also set a timer or schedule, or change its color. The LED lantern even can simulate a candle using flicker. Moreover, a convenient handle lets you take the LED light to light your path, and its built-in rechargeable battery offers about 16 hours of use on full blast, while included charging dock allows you to charge Vela with ease.
At present the team of Vela is raising fund at Kickstarter. Pledging $80 will let you own the Bluetooth LED lantern. If you’re interested, jump to Kickstarter official site for more details or check out the following demo video first.
