Researchers at MIT are experimenting with new lighting systems that puts control back into the users’ hands and halves the electricity bill. Everything will be controlled from a business card-sized tablet, from which you will be able to adjust which bulbs you want on or the intensity of the light.

This new application will mostly be useful in office spaces where so much electricity is being wasted because lights are often left on when not needed or because of commodity reasons. It also comes in handy in other public spaces, such as schools where it has been discovered that pupils’ learning outcomes are directly affected by the type of light that illuminates their classrooms.
