The very concept of a connected light bulb is one that might surprise you, but it’s an intriguing part of a connected and automated home. Philips Hue is a set of connected LEDs that can light up a room with any colour or shade in the gamut, literally changing the look and mood inside.

There may be nothing as daunting and exciting as moving away from home and into a dorm to start college or university.
