Monitor the air your breath, listen to music and much more with the Beacon cube
Do you struggle to relax at night? Are you worried about the harmful chemicals potentially floating around in your home or office space? Do you just love really cool-looking speakers? We have just the new bit of tech for you...
This is Beacon, a new smart device that monitors air quality and uses bio-rhythmic lighting to relax you. With its built-in air quality monitor, Beacon’s detect harmful particulates and take steps to improve the quality of air. The brilliant little box is also capable of generating artificial sunlight that helps align circadian rhythms, improving your sleep patterns and helping you kick-start the day.
Finally, with the Beacon’s built-in speakers, you can reduce noise pollution in the room with ambient nature sounds or connect your smartphone to play your own music playlist. You can use Bluetooth or even connect up your headphones and enjoy that ambiance in isolation.
Add in the ability to charge other devices and easy to use controls and the Beacon is one unique little package. Its Kickstarter campaign just went live at 2pm today, so head on over and be one of the first to nab your very own Beacon.
