Lumibee Review: ABOUT LUMIBEE HD: This groundbreaking projector is the new thanks to watch your favorite content! it’s capable of projecting up to five .5 meters, just aim at any wall! it’s compatible with cellphones, laptops, and flash drives and has integrated audio.
The new American LED light generation is used by LumiBee HD. All energy consumption is just 10W-24W, saving energy and not harming your eyes. The lifespan of the sunshine emitter is quite 30,000 hours. High brightness, stable performance, and long life.
In order to check the LumiBee, Lumi Industries’ CEO Davide Marin, developed an App to be installed on mobile phones. To begin, he chose Android studio (so no Apple devices are supported at the moment). The App is extremely basic, and therefore the code is out there on GitHub.
He didn’t want to offer a cloud-based solution, but used instead a stand-alone approach, to avoid the necessity of an internet connection and make it as more accessible as possible. We are using free Chitubox as software for 3D model preparation for 3D printing.
Profiles are already available, so all 3D model supporting and slicing is completed on the PC, with software most users are already conversant in and doubtless, have already installed. Then sliced layers of PNG images are transferred on the phone. When programming in Android Studio and starting the LumiBee testing, we acknowledged a small, but not so small, issue that needed to be taken care of.
It seems that even in fully manual mode, the luminosity of the screen remains suffering from the ambient light sensor of the phone: therefore the actual intensity of screen light, even when set at maximum, might differ if the phone is in a dark place or during a bright room, and up to our knowledge, there are no thanks to avoiding this.
On an inexpensive Chinese phone, the Ulefone, this wasn’t happening, because it’s so cheap it doesn’t have any ambient light sensors! Davide developed an easy device to check the actual screen light of your smartphone using three LDR sensors. It proved very useful to check screen luminosity. Plans to create it also are available for download.

To avoid the smartphone’s ambient light sensor affecting the screen’s maximum brightness value, a fast “Maker” solution was found! We are employing a tiny SMD Led, taped with black electrical tape and held in situ with a 3d printed clip just over the ambient light sensor. In this way, the sunshine sensor is going to be tricked and it’ll “believe” to be in a bright room, therefore the screen will keep at the utmost possible luminosity!
