Crowdsourcing Mornings: Aumi – Reinventing The Night Light

Geek Alabama Crowdsourcing Mornings

This is Crowdsourcing Mornings! This post takes place every weekday morning and highlights one crowdsourcing project I liked from Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or other crowdsourcing websites.

Aumi is the smartest Night Light you’ll ever own. It’s a Bluetooth enabled, portable, multi-colored nightlight that you control with your smart phone or tablet.  Turn the light on or off, choose from over 16 million color options, set it to automatically turn on when dark, set timers to dim or turn off, Use the aluminum bezel or the app to adjust the brightness, get notifications such as texts or calls, have Aumi stay on when the power goes out, unplug and use it as accent lighting.  Aumi is simple to set-up. Simply plug in your Aumi to any outlet, download and install their free app and you’re all set.

They have their final design and have started testing different LED’s and batteries they would like to use in their final version. They’ve developed a prototype but now they need to finalize their electronics and programming.  Funds would go towards manufacture of Aumi.


As of July 3rd, this project has raised around $60,000 of their $32,476 goal. This project only has 19 days left to raise as much as it can!  For a pledge of $28, you will get one Aumi night light.  For a pledge of $57, you will get two Aumi night lights.  To learn more and to pledge money, go to:
