Nanoleaf has been working on new hexagon-shaped lighting panels to add to its triangle and square-shaped lighting panel options, and the Hexagons are now available for limited pre-orders.

Customers who signed up to be notified when the Hexagons became available were this week sent emails allowing them to place a pre-order. Pre-orders are set to open for everyone on Friday, May 15, and the Hexagons will be available for regular purchase towards the end of June.

The Nanoleaf Hexagons are the first panels that are part of Nanoleaf's new Shapes line, which will feature shape interconnectivity.

Like the Nanoleaf Canvas and Aurora, the Hexagons can be tiled together to create unique patterns using a small number of lights or multiple packs of light panels. The panels are designed to attach to the wall in an interlocking pattern using adhesive.

The lights can be controlled with Scenes in the Nanoleaf app, and a Rhythm option lets the lights shift based on the music that's playing. As with the Nanoleaf Canvas, the Hexagons are touch-enabled and will change colors when touched, allowing for games and other interactions.

More information about the Hexagons can be found on the Nanoleaf website.

These were made for tech YouTubers. Prepare to see these all over YouTube in the background as they say "hey guys..."

Never understood the appeal of these - maybe in a modernistic hotel lobby or night club or something but not in a home - which seems to be what all their example photos are of. Maybe just not millennial enough (at all)

Kinda astounding how they couldn't manage to make those hexagons look even remotely tasteful in any of those photographs. Even without context they look terrible. They are unevenly lit and have strange white bezels.

LOL! Who thinks to themselves, "I'm going to paint random purple rectangles on my walls and doors." Also... why do the floor boards look like they are decking? Person must love spiders.

Sounds like your home looks boring as hell.

I suppose it does if your personal aesthetic is “MOAR SATURATED STIMULI!

I just don’t happen to need everything in my life to pulsate, interact, and actively illuminate in narrow spectral bands like I’m living in a turn of the century iTunes visualizer. I understood the fascination when LEDs first got traction— Oliver Sacks had to down a cocktail of psychedelics to experience indigo, now we can do it sober— but with time I find it crass, annoying and dated.
