ACCELERATING PERFORMANCE AND SAFETY

 

Our groundbreaking textile-integrated illumination technology that is revolutionizing the future of apparel, setting new standards for safety, visibility, and product differentiation.

WE LIGHT YOUR WAY

Consumer Driven

Firefly came to life at a time when reflectives were the only visibility and safety solution for night-time runners and cyclists. Far from the optimal solution, runners and cyclists were still at risk of accidents due to fast-moving motorists, or the lack of external light sources. Driven by this knowledge, we conducted research and collated consumer insights to develop our patented active lighting technology – Firefly. Using an LED-based system to improve low-light visibility, Firefly increased wearer visibility range to over 200 meters and negated the need for an external light source, drastically improving wearer safety.

Science based visibility

Our Firefly solution comes in two main integratable form factors:

  1. Light Guides (Strips) – LEDs embedded in optical grade silicone strips, perfect for safety based visibility applications.
  2. Point Source (Dots) – Discrete LEDs embedded directly into fabric which function well for both visibility and aesthetic product differentiation.

Our wiring consists of safely encapsulated conductive pathways that act as the powering solution for Firefly products. Working in tandem with the soft-good, we are able to use our own powering solution (a splash-proof 16g battery module), or link this up to a powering solution of your choice. More recent developments have helped us crack the code on RGB color optionality and gradients, built to allow brands to better engage with their customers aesthetically.
