Colorspike: portable programmable LED light for filmmakers

Colorspike is a programmable LED wand a yard or so long, designed to create lighting moods for filmmakers. A crackling fire just out of shot, for example, or the suggestion of a computer scanning a body for life signs — all easily accomplished with a small battery-powered gadget. It seems incredibly versatile and a must for anyone who wants to shoot narrative on a budget, but we won't know if it lives up to the demos until it Kickstarts. At $300, it seems reasonably-priced, too — compare to Ice Light [Amazon], a similar light that only does unprogrammed 5500&deg and has found its way into just about everyone's bag in the last few years.
