Awesome Portable Lighting Design

Just saw this on Shark Tank last night and immediately thought about the possibilities as a portable video/photography light. If they created a bi-color model with a high CRI I think it could be a big hit.

It's an interesting idea, but the light output looks pretty low, and I wonder about the color accuracy of it.

I think this would be more useful as a "practical" light that you show on camera while filming, than as a cine light to light up your set.

Agreed. But these weren't designed as photography/video lights, just as little portable ambient lights. My thoughts were that if they took this concept (folding portable book light that opens out into a soft box), and gave it a higher output, higher CRI, etc. that it would make a great little portable video light.

Kind of like a fold-up "china-ball" light.
