About this project
External Flash & Video Lighting for iPhone, GoPro® & Android
We made Lume Cube to help photographers, videographers and iPhoneographers capture scenes and memories after dark. It’s the world’s first 1,500 lumen external flash and video light that goes virtually anywhere and mounts to virtually anything.
Control & Adjust Light From Your Smartphone

Why Did We Make Lume Cube?
All great photography has one thing in common: exceptional lighting. iPhone, Android and GoPro® have done a brilliant job of making photography and videography more accessible, but they’re limited by low-light and nighttime scenarios.
We thought, “Why can’t we use these devices as we would our professional camera equipment?” We wanted to make a miniature light that would be the most powerful, versatile and useful the world has ever seen. Thus the Lume Cube was born.
We need your backing to manufacture the first batch of Lume Cubes. For decades we’ve been developing products, and Lume Cube is our most exciting to date. We have our molding. We have our tooling. We’re set to ship within 90 days. The only problem: production is a huge expense. If you like what you see, show us some love and pledge whatever amount you can to make Lume Cube a reality.
Here's the current state of Affairs...
- Prototype is in hand and fully functional
- iPhone App is fully functional
- Manufacturing is in Place - Just need your help for the first run!
- Colored sleeves printed and in hand, exploring more options
- Estimated Delivery February 2015
