With the Nanoleaf lines you can build your own light shapes, its modular backlit smart light bars connect together to create virtually infinite designs. The Lines use a form of backlighting to throw shades of different colors at your wall instead of shining out at you to provides a better kind of ambient lighting that isn’t quite so blinding as it could be. Unlike similar entries from Lifx and even Govee, Nanoleaf’s Lines are modular. In the pack, you’ll get several joint pieces that connect the light bars together. These hexagon-shaped joint pieces house six connection points that let you place a light bar vertically, horizontally, or at angles. With a bit of planning, you can build shapes and customize the lights to fit your wall. Another feature that gamers will love is Screen Miror which will reflect the colors from your on-screen activity onto your lights, taking your entertainment beyond the screen for a next-level gaming or movie watching experience. The Lines also connect to the Nanoleaf app (iOS and Android), Google Assistant, and Alexa. But they also serve as a Thread Border router, a bonus if you own Nanoleaf’s Essentials line. You’ll also get a built-in microphone for Nanoleaf’s Rhythm Music Visualizer Technology, which allows the lights to react to music in the room.
