  • Publication number: 20150264459
    Abstract: Techniques associated with a combination speaker and light source responsive to states of an environment based on sensor data are described, including a housing, a light source disposed within the housing and configured to be powered using a light socket connector coupled to the housing, a speaker coupled to the housing and configured to output audio, and a sensor device comprising a light and speaker controller, the sensor device configured to determine an environmental state and to generate environmental state data associated with the environmental state, the light and speaker controller configured to send a control signal to one or both of the light source and the speaker.

  • Publication number: 20140334653
    Abstract: Techniques associated with a combination speaker and light source (“speaker-light device”) responsive to states of an organism based on sensor data are described, including generating chemical sensor data in response to one or more chemicals sensed by one or more chemical sensors in the same or different speaker-light devices. A scent generator may be activated to counter an odor caused by a chemical detected by the chemical sensor(s). The speaker-light device may activate an air mover operative to circulate ambient air over the chemical sensor. The speaker-light device may take an appropriate action in response to detected chemicals that affect states of the organism. Some or all of the actions taken may be taken by other devices in communication with the speaker-light device(s). An action may include generating and presenting a path or route to be taken by a user to an area of safety or reduced chemical concentration.

  • Publication number: 20140327515
    Abstract: Techniques associated with a combination speaker and light source responsive to states of an organism based on sensor data are described, including receiving state data from a wearable device configured to generate the state data using sensor data, generating light data using the state data, generating audio data using the state data, providing the light data and the audio data to a controller configured to generate one or more control signals using the light data and the audio data, the one or more control signals configured to adjust a light source and a speaker, the light source and the speaker implemented in a combination speaker and light source device.

  • Publication number: 20140285326
    Abstract: Techniques associated with a combination speaker and light source (“speaker-light device”) responsive to states of an organism based on sensor data are described, including generating motion sensor data in response to a movement captured using a motion sensor, deriving movement data using a motion analysis module configured to determine the movement to be associated with one or more of a gesture, an identity, and an activity, using the motion sensor data, generating acoustic sensor data in response to sound captured using an acoustic sensor, deriving audio data using a noise removal module configured to subtract a noise signal from the acoustic sensor data, detecting a radio frequency signal using a communication facility, the radio frequency being associated with a personal device, obtaining state data from the personal device, and determining a desired light characteristic using the state data and one or both of the movement data and the audio data.

  • Publication number: 20140286517
    Abstract: Techniques for managing a network of speaker lights and wearable devices using intelligent connection managers are described. Disclosed are techniques for receiving data representing a distance between a wearable device and a speaker light, the speaker light associated with an identifier, and generating an audio control signal and a light control signal as a function of the distance. The audio control signal may include data representing an audio parameter and data representing the identifier, and the light control signal may include data representing a light parameter and data representing the identifier. Presentation of an audio signal using the audio parameter and a light using the light parameter may be caused at the speaker light. The audio signal and the light may be substantially directed towards the wearable device or a user.
