CES 2015: Misfit introduces the Bolt smart light bulb

January 6, 2015

First came the Swarovski Shine. Now, Misfit has introduced the Bolt, its first smart bulb. The announcement was made at the 2015 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Bolt, like the Philips Hue before it, allows yours mobile device to control your lights. Unlike the Philips Hue, the Bolt doesn’t require a centralized hub for it to work.

Take a look:

The Bolt is priced at $49.99 per bulb, or $129.99 for a three-pack.

Also announced at CES, the Swarovski Shine is a fitness wearable device that runs completely on solar energy and can be recharged by the sun or indoor lighting. Just like Misfit’s other devices, the Shine and Flash, the Swarovski Shine can track steps, distance walked, calories burned, sleep quality, and sleep duration. Since the tracker doesn’t have any type of screen, users can view their data with the companion Misfit iOS app.

The Bolt will work with the upcoming Misfit Home app for iOS and with Logitech’s Harmony Home remote. You can also use a Misfit Flash to control brightness and turn your bulbs on and off.

Bolt preorders can be made through the Misfit website. Shipments begin in February.
