Digital color technology

KICK can do any color you want. Without filters/gels.

You may also sample colors and light effects, from an existing image or video or directly from the world around you via the phone camera (even while using it). Simply point the phone towards the light effect you want KICK to recreate, tap the screen – and KICK will emit that light.

Sampled light effects are automatically stored in the app’s effects library.

Animated light. Video effects

Effects library & sampling of video effects: KICK excels at animated light.

Candle flicker. Blistering lightning storms – KICK can produce any animated light effect. Choose one from the built-in effects library, or sample video effects from an existing video.

You can sample light effects from any video stored on your phone. This is how it works: From within the Kick app you can open and run any video; move the cursor over the light effect you want to sample, and the app will stream that light directly to your KICK(s).

Sampled light effects are automatically stored in the app´s effects library.

One thought on “Kick

  1. […] The Kick, from Rift Labs, is the truly portable, multi-color lighting solution you’ve been waiting for. You’ll still need to select a good direction and placement for the light, but now you can have control over the hue and brightness, thanks to the 40 built-in LEDs. And there’s much more too, thanks to the programmable nature of the Kick via the app- you can easily add effects, and either create your own or select one from a library. That means instant flameless candles, or a fake lightning storm, created on demand. You can play your videos back via the lights, and this can create some fun samples with no effort. We weren’t able to try it out, but you can link multiple together as well. […]
