Remember way back when we wrote “What product would you like to see get a Kickstarter campaign?” One could only imagine the successful run that the Kick Light would have on Kickstarter.

Well paint the chickens any colour you like because we nailed that prediction! And with the KICK light you can do just that…

Now called the KICK and more polished than we first showed you the KICK now has a Kickstarter campaign in full swing and offering some tasty offerings.

But what is the KICK? Just the dawn of a new brighter era in lighting. The KICK is smarter than smart lighting.

We are out to forever change how video and photo lights work. Traditional photo and video lights are expensive, heavy, generate a lot of heat, and their main feature is that you can turn them on and off. Not too exciting. Then there is the recent invasion of cheap knockoffs. And the thousands of cheap LED based lights of really poor quality. You either pay through your nose for old technology, or you deal with cheap crap that breaks the first time you use it.

It’s time to rethink.

The video may start off a little meh but then bang and then some. That Kick Light is freakin WOW.

Color rendering index or CRI I hear your scream:

The Kick Light is a lightweight, feature rich, affordable photo/video light for smart phones and SLRs. It boasts amazing light effects and creative features: adjustable color temperature, colored light (any color!), animated light, built-in light effects and streaming of light from existing videos for use in your own video production. With the Kick Light and the Kick App you can sample light effects pretty much like you sample music!

Granted, the Kick is a small light. You won’t be able to light a cathedral with it. But the fun starts here.

Kick will help you take better pictures, make better videos and have great fun doing it.

Please see the Rift Labs Kickstarter campaign about the KICK light for more information.
