Lightpack: Ambient Backlight for Displays, Reduces Eye Fatigue


Tue, Dec 10th, 2013 12:00 by capnasty NEWS

The Lightpack is a cross-platform set of LEDs that are attached to the back of your display and give the illusion that your screen is far bigger than it is. Additionally, the system reduces eye fatigue during light-to-dark transitions. Oh, it also looks really cool.

It takes about 5 sec for an eye pupil to narrow to react to bright light, and up to 5 mins to increase the size of a pupil when scene gets dark back. Every movie switches from dark to bright scenes a large number of times. The muscles of an eye are in constant tension which can lead to vision problems. Lightpack can compensate rapid fluctuations of the room light.
