Lumu - bringing the Light Meter into the 21st Century

Lumu Labs a startup based out of Ljubljana in Slovenia have just launched a kickstarter campaign, which claims to bring the science of reflected light metering into the 21st century.

The hardware is intriguing, marrying a small dome housing a specifically designed light sensor, with an iPhone linked to the Lumu app, this device looks set to bring the art of measuring light into the hands of the photographic community.

The light meter of the 21th century should obviously make use of the iPhone. But not because of its light metering capabilities, but because of all the other things iPhone is good at: big screen, gestures, location, connectivity, mobility, apps, and more.
