Polaroid has been on a lighting spree of late, and the brand continued that trend this week by launching a lightweight, flexible LED light panel that can be bent into various positions and shapes.
The 12×12-inch (30.5 x 30.5cm) panel offers flicker-free 5600K color temperature light at a thickness of just 16mm / 0.6in. Inside are embedded 256 total LEDs that output 4500 lumens of light, which Polaroid says makes it nearly as bright as direct sunlight; however, the panel does include a diffusion filter to produce a softer “dreamy glow.”
According to the product’s Amazon page, Polaroid’s new panel includes a remote control for toggling the light’s channels and settings, it is dimmable, and it’s being described as durable, though Polaroid doesn’t detail the exact materials it used to make the product.
The Polaroid flexible LED panel is available now for $125 USD.
