Hi! My name is Lummee. I am an interactive playtime companion during the day and a comforting, portable and colorful light in the night. I can help you fall asleep, and I let you know when it's time to wake up. You can take me anywhere you go, and during the day I like to play with you. I like you to be my next best friend! 

A comforting RGB light in the dark.

Hi, I am Lummee Blue
I am Lummee Blue, I have a wonderful 'haircut' and I love to play. Flying like an air plane will trigger my 'special macho mode'. Eat this Johnny Bravo!

I am Lummee Pink, nice to meet youI am Lummee Pink, have two cute 'pigtails' and love to hug and cuddle. Cradle me gently and i will fall madly in love with you, my ‘special mode’. Get ready for cuteness overload! 

I am Green, Lummee Green - The Goof
I am Lummee Green, I have an awesome Mohawk and I am goofy and frolic. Doing somersaults will trigger my ‘special wacko mode’. Things are about to get crazy… 

Sound sample
Every Lummee will have it's own unique sounds. Work in progress but listen to a quick example of what we have in mind.... fun right?

Let's play together!

It was a typical Dutch winter Sunday: cold and dark. Still I was in a great mood because today was the first time my favourite nephew would stay with us for the weekend. It was bound to be a weekend filled with joy.

When he arrived, there was no time for a proper hello, he went straight for the 'magic box'. The magic box is Thomas his favourite. The box is filled with all kind of arts-and-crafts stuff. He loves to be creative and can spend the whole day just making things. After an hour of drawing, cutting and gluing we ended up making a little blue friend.

The rest of the day we played with our new best friend until it was time for bed. Of course 'Blue' (that's what we named him) had to come and as it turned out he became the saviour of the night. A strange and dark bedroom is apparently an ingredient for a 'i-don't-want-to-go-to-sleep' six-year-old. Whatever I tried, Thomas wouldn't go to sleep... Then, after numerous attempts from reading, singing and even an improvised sleep dance, the solution was right there; Blue. Blue over a night light, that is... 

How could i forget that just a simple ray of light could make such a difference. With 'Blue the Light' (Funny how fast names can change) next to him it was time for a well-deserved goodnight. For the both of us that is. After a great weekend it was time to go back to work. At our Monday morning ritual (heaps of coffee) I told my colleagues at our design studio all about Thomas and our little adventure. We decided to further explore the idea of 'Blue the Light'. 

Design, engineering & prototyping

After weeks of hard (but fun) work; concepting, drawing, 3d printing and prototyping we created a new 'Blue'. A Blue, not from paper and table tennis balls, but a real working night light and much more. In fact, we kind of got carried away in the process, we added a bunch of features to make Blue amazing.

Dynteq is a award winning Dutch industrial design agency, consisting of young and passionate designers. Every day they work on the development of new products and improving existing ones. From their offices in Enschede and Utrecht they act as an extension of an R&D department and they can give company's advice on strategic level. They work for both national and international renowned clients. Innovation is in their DNA.After years of making cool stuff for our clients, we decided to create something for ourselves: Lummee. Inspired by a true story we created something worth sharing.

Lummee, our very first own project and inspired by a true story is something we want to share with the world. We relied on family and friends to act as early testsubjects for Lummee. They were more than happy to play the part! We created a 3D print prototype to let them interact and play with. This gave us valuable insight into our product design choices. Some designs were good, others bad, but this process was crucial in creating a final product that kids would love (to play with). We teamed up with an awesome company (lighting-experts) to make Lummee as great as we wished for. 

Now it's time to move into production and find more awesome supporters. That's why we chose Kickstarter. One prototype was just the beginning and now we need your support to help us bring the whole Lummee family to life.

 

Risks and challenges

We are focused on delivering all pledges in a timely manner, however, as with any product that involves complex manufacturing, production delays could become an issue. We will focus on keeping our supporters always informed and mitigating any potential delays.

We have an extremely experienced team that has delivered on both physical and digital products, large and small. This experience will help us identify potential issues we face early and apply the appropriate recourse. Thank you for your patience and we hope you love Lummee as much as we do!
