Imagine a world where lighting was not a fixed object, but instead followed us wherever we went, displaying different light depending on what you’re doing, how you’re feeling, or the outfit you’re wearing.

This is exactly what PhD student Nan Zhao has created, as part of the Responsive Environments Group at MIT Media Lab. This quirky invention, named Halo, is a device that can be worn, and is made from a ring of LEDs that perfectly frame the wearer’s head and illuminates their face and shoulders.

Halo is made of light weight aluminum, and can be shaped to the user’s body. It’s controlled by an app that allows you to change the lighting types depending on your mood.
