“We are a company deeply rooted in science and dedicated to helping people go from knowing what to do to bring more well-being into their lives to actually doing it. I am so excited about the amazing collection of products, services and technologies we’re featuring at Thrive Global that will help people improve their well-being and productivity and lead healthier and more joyful lives,” said Arianna Huffington, CEO and Founder of Thrive Global.

Twist delivers the ultimate lighting and music streaming experience by providing a non-intrusive product that also promotes healthier living. With its patented adaptive lighting technology, Twist bulbs transition from energizing white light in the morning to calming yellow light in the evening, just like the sun, to produce biologically-correct lighting that is available to homeowners and renters alike.

Twist’s LED speaker and transitional light bulb combination makes the smart home attainable for everyone. Renters can finally enjoy the benefits of connected living and add an element of personalization without making any structural changes. Homeowners don’t need to make a significant financial investment to reap the benefits of a smart home. Twist’s simple, non-intrusive size doesn't add any extra clutter to the home. With its wireless and installation-free design, Twist’s LED light bulb is compatible with standard light sockets, with no hub needed.

With lighting and audio in one, you can play crystal-clear, lossless music to match your mood, and dim or brighten the light to match your energy levels. Twist makes waking for early morning workouts easier and nights and sleep routines more relaxing with automatic white to yellow light adjustments. Twist also features evergreen technology: more features can be added down the line with a simple firmware update, pushed over WiFi, so you don’t need to replace the bulb as additional features are released.
