xLight is a programmable lighting product series. Its control box is a microcomputer integrating two IR sensors, an IR receiver, and a microphone, allowing you to set the colors and brightness of the LEDs and design your own light effects and games.
Being programmable and allowing control through app, gesture, and remote control, xLight can be used as a nightlight for lighting, mood lighting kit to improve your mood, game device to play games, and tool for programming learning.
