Luke Roberts – the EBV IoT Hero winner of 2018

Luke Roberts develops the world’s first smart design lamp that allows you to move the light in any direction without moving the lamp. With simple print gestures on your phone, you can have a bright light on the couch for reading, dimmed light on the table for dinner and colored indirect light for relaxing. The lamp also learns from your behavior and turns on the most likely light scene based on usage pattern, time of day and surrounding light. The smartness is in the lamp and does not require internet access or other smart home devices. Luke Roberts consists of a team of experienced hardware and software developers and the founders have several years of experience as management consultants.
