MIPOW, known in the Philippines for their power banks, unveiled yesterday their PlayBulb series of Bluetooth-enabled color-changing smart LED lights.

At the launch in EDSA Shangri-La Hotel, MIPOW’s vice president and head of global sales and marketing, Bon Lam, gave a demonstration of light manipulation in the techiest and most colorful way, eliciting oohs and aahs from the press in attendance.

The PlayBulb lights aren’t your regular LED lights. They can display up to 256 colors, and are Bluetooth-enabled to allow your iOS or Android device to control light color, brightness, and effects through the PlayBulb X app, which can be downloaded for free.

Via the app, you can group together up to five PlayBulb products and control them as one, and have multiple groups as well.

The PlayBulb series

MIPOW brought in three PlayBulb models: PlayBulb Candle (BTS 300), PlayBulb Rainbow (BTL 200), and PlayBulb Color (BTL 100C White).

The PlayBulb Candle, which retails at P999, is a flame-less LED nightlight. Like a real candle flame, the light turns off when you blow on it. But when you blow on it again, it turns back on. Shake it and it changes color. If you turn it over, the PlayBulb Candle can function as a tealight stand.

The PlayBulb Color, priced at P3,999, is a color-changing LED bulb with a built-in Bluetooth speaker. So aside from the light features that the PlayBulb Candle has, the Color blasts music right from the light source, which sounds perfect for an intimate party at home. Music playback controls are also found in the app.

The PlayBulb Rainbow LED bulb has the same light features as the Color but doesn’t have the built-in speaker. It is priced at P1,999.

MIPOW products are available at PowerMac, Switch, iStudio, Rustan’s, Abenson, MiPow SM Megamall and SM Ayala Concept Store, Mobile1, SM Department Stores, SM Appliance, Memoxpress, and A Shop.
