Glint Hero is the first luminaire that can point light in any direction without moving the fixture itself. Instead of a conventional single bulb, Hero has a row of 10 fixed LEDs that shine up into a corresponding row of 10 tiny reflectors that can move. A joystick moves the complete row of reflectors in an X-Y axis. As the row of reflectors moves relative to the fixed row of LEDs below it, the angle of light changes dramatically. Since Hero’s fixture never needs to move to aim light, multiple units can be perfectly aligned to one another for a clean contemporary look. Hero is the clean replacement for messy track lighting.
