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]

The future is here

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.
