Color Kinetics Awarded Illumination Patent
Oct 2002
BOSTON, Oct. 25 -- Color Kinetics Inc. has been awarded its 13th patent relating to its line of solid-state illumination technologies. These technologies leverage a layer of digital intelligence to control light-emitting diodes (LEDs) to generate a variety of lighting effects. The new patent includes nearly 50 separate technology claims and covers a variety of methods for illuminating materials with color-controlled LED systems.

The patent describes a variety of illumination applications in which features of a material -- such as a design within an object, or a color in a sign or graphic -- are highlighted by a color or colors of light. This technique could distinguish certain elements in a material, such as in machine vision or medical applications, the company said. The patent also describes a positioning system to remotely align LED illumination systems.
