SAN JOSE, Calif., Feb. 26, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- As sleep disorders and energy costs rise, Uopia launches a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter for a new kind of LED nightlight. What makes their nightlight different is that it feels and looks like a warm incandescent bulb while providing the energy savings and longevity of an LED unit. The warm color temperature of the light is preferable to blue or cool lighting because of the negative effects they have on sleep. The light consumes less than 87% energy than the leading alternative, amounting to just $0.58 a year to operate.
Uopia's CEO and co-founder, David Clark, dreams of a home environment where light switches do not exist and energy consumption is minimized. "Imagine walking around your home in the evening without having to turn lights on and off." For just a few watts of energy your whole home can be illuminated with candle-like lighting. Their Kickstarter project is making that dream a reality.
Clark had recognized that nightlights and LED products on the market were producing too much blue light and disturbing sleep. Dr. Charles A. Czeisler at Harvard Medical School says,
"The adverse effects of night-time light on sleep and circadian rhythms can be reduced by replacing blue-enriched light with red-or orange-enriched white light after sunset."
Uopia built an energy saving version of the product Dr. Czeisler was talking about. A CRI of over 80 ensures that colors look vibrant, even in a dim lighting environment. Two brightness settings give you flexibility in illuminating your environment. The bright setting is perfect for living rooms, kitchens, and hallways; while the dimmer setting is preferred in bedrooms and bathrooms.
The Kickstarter campaign just recently launched and will run through March 26th.
Uopia is a company founded by David Clark and Brandon Williams in San Jose, CA. Additional information can be found at www.Uopia.com. To schedule an interview contact Brandon Williams at [email protected].

Choosing the right cloud for your workloads is a balancing act that can cost your organization time, money and aggravation - unless you get it right the first time. Economics, speed, performance, accessibility, administrative needs and security all play a vital role in dictating your approach to the cloud. Without knowing the right questions to ask, you could wind up paying for capacity you'll never need or underestimating the resources required to run your applications.
