A strange yet interesting experiment in immersive TV programming tech.

Syfy channel experiments with syncing Philips Hue smart lights with scenes in 12 Monkeys to immerse the viewers in action beyond the TV screen.
I think the idea is kinda silly maybe? Who knows It may be just what the atmosphere ordered!
Who out there own/uses these light bulbs?

It's a really cool concept. Not something I would use all the time, but would be fun with movies.

Leave it out-
I have speakers, long forgotten and buried that disconcertingly come alive during tense films - shredding my frayed nerves even further

I may be wrong, but what if the offset in shadows and contrast ratios in the room had the opposite effect? Perhaps it would be like mellow music vs hard rock on the mind.

I can imagine..as it goes I have an immodest system and screen.. - I dont think I would even notice the room lights do a fandango

For some reason I was thinking of the curtains opening and closing too

It would feel like monster house. This could get pee you pants scary depending on the movie it accompanied.

I like the curtain idea. I was thinking of an outside windows with variable translucency. With the TV or with your sleep schedule. Simulate sunrise with outside lighting at 2PM.

I see side view projection with scene of lightning right before the tension breaks. Blood pressure pill please.

i have one of those smart tvs and it sort of does the opposite,the tv changes its lighting settings depending on ambient light either from lights in the room or sun hitting the screen. it tripped me out at first and i thought my tv was breaking but i guess its normal.

from reading this link www.hollywoodreporter.com... this would control the brightness in the room depending on what your watching correct?

Correct. I imagine something like the lights flickering During a storm scene or earthquake. Getting dimmer as the sun goes down and brighter at dawn ..But alas I have no bulbs or really the motivation ..lol

I think lights flickering or changing intensity and colour would be really distracting and would drive me batty. I still feel the best way to immerse yourself in a movie is to have a dark room i.e. no lighting, and be close enough to the screen so the edges of the film are in a bit from your periferal vision so you can still see the edges details. Surround sound or surround sound headphones add to the immersion effect.
