GloWhite Group Project
The University of South Wales runs IET accredited courses in Lighting Design & Technology and Sound & Live Event Production. As part of the third year syllabus, students are required to design and build a product for the lighting and live event industries, which is then showcased to industry professionals and other business leaders.
GloWhite is a variable white E27 lamp controlled via wireless DMX. Artistic Licence provided its student development team with 3D printed parts, without which the manufacturing costs of the prototype would have been prohibitively expensive.
