Visibility
Comfort, performance and on- demand lighting in a single package
ACCELERATING PERFORMANCE AND SAFETY
Customized Illuminated Solutions
Our groundbreaking textile-integrated illumination technology that is revolutionizing the future of apparel, setting new standards for safety, visibility, and product differentiation. Our platform offers more than 450 feet of visibility in low light conditions with over 8 hours of continuous illumination.
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.

Patented. Awarded. Different.
Our platform is recognized as an illumination technology that has revolutionized the future of smart soft goods, and is a recipient of a CES 2017 Honoree Award and an ISPO 2018 Silver Award.
Our Visibility platform 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, the platform 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. Light Guides (Strips) and Point Source (Dots) 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 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.
Our Lighting
Applications
Embracing the power of fabric-based active lighting, we have designed solutions to varied problems spanning applications and industries.
Consumer Technology
LED Integration intro interactive devices and accessories. We have the capabilities to discretely integrated RGB illumination to build UI needs such as notifications in devices.
Consumer Health
From the integration of lighting into soft goods for notification and indicative purposes, to the creation of wearable, portable phototherapy devices.
Workwear
On the job protection to workers in high-risk, low-light conditions, with sensors and LED lights built directly into their protective gear
Performance and Outdoor
Keeps you visible and protected when hiking, mountain climbing and skiing in low-light conditions, allowing you to remain active and safe in tough conditions.
Fashion
Easily integratable into haute couture allowing designers to explore and illuminate their creativity – from the illumination of logos, to mood based lighting.
