I was one of the first people to jump on the Philips Hue platform when it first came out, and for years, I've happily been using a dozen bulbs across my apartment. For now, it's a mild convenience -- I can turn off all my lights with one switch when I'm leaving the house, and it's fun to sync the TV lights to NFL touchdowns.
But the real promise of smart lights has always been something more than just controlling lamps with an app. In a perfect world, they'd become party lights when needed, mood lights when watching TV, and effects lights when gaming. Thanks to Philips' latest idea, Hue Entertainment, that concept is about to become reality.
