About this project
Tired of tripping over things in the dark at night? Need a light that doesn't blind your eyes for your nighttime bathroom trips? Want a clear view whenever you open a cabinet in the dark?
Say hello to M-Light, a miniature light that lights up automatically when it detects body motion in the dark.
Small and lightweight
M-Light is small, only a little larger than a quarter, with a size of 1.33 x 1.33 x 0.79 (inch) or 33 x 33 x 20 (mm). It's only 0.55 inch (20 mm) thick if do not include the Fresnel lens.
M-Light is lightweight, only 0.5 oz (15 g) including the rechargeable battery.
The brightness of the LED lights is adjustable to match your needs. That is necessary especially for your nighttime bathroom trips so it will not blind your eyes.
Motion and light activated
M-Light will only light up when it detects motion in a dark environment, which is activated by its PIR (Pyroelectric Infrared Radial) sensor and light sensor. The PIR sensor detects the body motion in front of it within a 110° scope, and has an effective range of around 10 feet (3 meters). The light sensor detects the darkness of its surroundings. Only when both sensors are activated will the LED lights be turned on. The lights will be automatically turned off if no other motion is detected for 30 seconds.
Rechargeable battery powered
M-Light is powered with a 170 mAh lithium-ion polymer battery which can be charged with a normal Micro USB cable. One charge could last months depending on how often the light is turned on.
M-Light has a magnet on its back. A small metal plate attached with 3M double sided tape on its back is provided for each M-Light. You stick that metal plate to the needed place, then attach M-Light to the metal plate by its magnet. This way you can easily take M-Light off for recharging its battery.
M-Light can be used in any environment where you need some light in the dark, without any hassle of turning it on or off.
You can attach it to the wall of hallway
or behind the main door so you never have difficult to find the light switch,
or put it inside bathroom for your night trips,
or inside cabinet to find your stuff at a glance,
or even in your bag so you have no trouble finding anything at night.
If this stretch goal is unlocked, we will provide 1 micro USB cable for each package (2 M-Lights). If you pledge 1 M-Light reward (whether early bird or not), we will provide 1 Micro USB cable as well.
Besides, this stretch goal will make the M-Light automatic turn off delay time adjustable. The current version is fixed at 30 seconds, we will make it adjustable from several seconds to several minutes.
We have finished the prototype of M-Light, now we need the funds to make it a real product, especially to cover the expensive tooling cost. With your support, we are sure we could bring M-Light to life.
Risks and challenges
The prototype of M-Light is already functional. We had successfully fulfilled our previous C-Cable campaign, we are confident in this campaign as well. That to be said, there is always the possibility of delays due to things beyond our control at the manufacturer’s facility. We will keep you closely updated with the progress and work hard to deliver your M-Light on schedule.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
