Ambify for iOS Sets Philips Hue Lights to Music

AmbifyAn iOS developer has made an app to sync the Philips Hue iOS-controlled LED light bulbs with music.

The $2.99 Ambify pulls tracks from the music library on an iPhone or iPad and plays them while simultaneously controlling the colors and brightness of the Philips Hue lights, creating a rave-like atmosphere with blinking multi-colored light bulbs synced to the music.
Ambify - the Hue enabled jukebox turns music into light using Philips Hue Smart Bulbs.

Being the first of it's kind, Ambify combines the simplicity of a jukebox with the endless new possibilities offered by Philips' Hue System.

It's a s simple as starting the app, selecting your lamps and choosing a playlist.
Ambify then applies our nifty algorithms to analyse and visualise your music in real-time using the lamps you've previously selected.

Ambify for iPhone and iPad is available for $2.99 on the App Store. [Direct Link]

This future is indeed here. This reminds me a bit of Journey into Imagination at EPCOT back in 1982 where one jumped over spots on the floor that were light with different colors and made music by hopping from one place to another. But this is the opposite - the music controls the lights. Truly amazing when you think about it.

Ha! Next Christmas I will rule the block with outdoor speakers, huge ones, and giant woofers and a thousand pulsating Phillips lights. Nobody will even notice the neighbors with their unimaginative strings of lights and inflatable santas. I will need some suggestions for edgy and loud Xmas music...It is all about religion of course.

I heard Philips has exited the consumer market. So no more TVs and no more hue.


Lighting is one of the areas they are still going to focus on - no more TVs - but lighting is now a huge focus for the company

I actually build a system like this myself...

http://www.andrewmunsell.com/blog/raspberry-pi-leds/

I don't mention it syncs to music in that post because I hadn't completed it at that point, but it's finished now and works great. My Mac sends the music beat and frequency data to the Raspberry Pi in real time and the lights are controlled in time with the music. The user can change the effect and colors at any time using the web console and pressing buttons on your keyboard.

Obviously, that system's only going to work if you have electronics and programming knowledge-- you have to wire up the LEDs and Raspberry Pi by yourself, and then install the software to control the LEDs. It's a DIY project, but it has pretty cool results.

These would be useful at a party, I suppose. But I don't see myself using it in every-day-life. the flashing on and off looks kinda annoying.

I think you'd rather be doing some shrooms or molly with this... or even better as Jobs used to ask when he interviewed... Have you ever done LSD?
