TUAW's Daily Deals
Take Better Photos & Video With The KICK [On sale for $149, down from $179]
The KICK is a revolutionary new way of lighting your photos and videos – and making sure you get perfect exposure every time.
It's only about the size of your smartphone, but comes packed with a rechargeable panel of 40 completely adjustable RGB LEDs. At 400 Lumens (twice as bright as most Police flashlights) it's powerful, but it's also intelligent – once you pair it with the free KICK app (iOS and Android).
The app provides completely adjustable brightness, color temperature, animated light, and built-in video effects – but what really stands out is its ability to recreate any color or effect from the world around you.
Point your smartphone at the effect you want to recreate, tap the screen, and KICK emits that light – be it a rainbow strobe, lightning flash, or flickering campfire.
KICK can also be controlled manually, and if you have more than one you can control them simultaneously through the app.
Save 16% on the KICK at TUAW Deals.
