If you’re a camper, chances are good you’ve heard of BioLite. It’s the company that created a portable wood-burning stove that generates enough electricity to fuel your devices when you’re off-grid. The firm has also made some pretty impressive camp lights – everything from small hanging pendants that can be daisy-chained together to a mini rectangular number that can clip on a shirt pocket. Now BioLite is seeking funding on Kickstarter for a new source of light called BaseLantern, which not only provides Bluetooth-controlled light, but also packs in some other handy features.
Like the mini Lantern the company came out with last year, the BaseLantern uses an edge lighting technology that basically blasts out as much light as possible from its enclosed LEDs.
If you find that light is a little too bright, you can control it through the accompanying app on your smartphone, which lets you run through a series of color and brightness adjustments until you get the light just right.
