iBuyPower goes beyond the PC with Ambient RGB lighting for the Living Room at CES 2020

During the CES 2020, we stopped by iBuyPower's booth, where we were shown a work in progress for an ambient lighting solution for your living room which mimics the setup of a 5.1 surround sound audio solution. It is a WIFI connected lighting setup, which enables you to adjust lighting based on what is playing on the TV or adjust it to suit your mood. The shown implementation did not include any speakers, but that is an option being considered. In addition to the 5 channels being placed traditionally around your TV, there is one square element that is intended to go on the ceiling, but as each light required separate power this could be an issue with very few living rooms coming with a plug in the ceiling to accommodate this. The whole setup can be controlled via software on your PC or an app on your phone, but as this is just a first version of the whole setup, things are prone to change before it hits retail as well. That said, while some may have had enough of the RGB craze, the lighting was quite immersive and could be interesting for gamers or movie aficionados.

RGB is like a disease. It spreads everywhere. First we had keyboards and mice, then chairs and tables, now it's starting to spread to the walls.

What's next - RGB door and knob?

It's just an ambient lamp with led, why the animosity? You know you can turn them off and ignore all the merchandising with led, right?
