The U of T engineering alumni behind Nanoleaf, a startup which they say makes ‘the world’s most energy-efficient lightbulb,’ blasted well beyond their latest funding goal in under two hours.
Fuelling the excitement: the debut of their latest product: a new LED bulb design called Bloom, which “transforms” any on/off light switch into a dimmable switch with the team’s innovative green technology.
Chu shared plans for the dimmable bulb in a U of T News story in March. Now that it’s launched, their latest product continues to rack up Kickstarter funding as they surpassed their original target of $30,000 in less than two hours.
“We want to inspire people to adopt more energy efficient technology into their everyday lives,” said co-founder Christian Yan. “The best way to do that is by making products that are simple and convenient to use.”
