I'm Sumedh Bhattacharya and I've spent a lot of my life tinkering with code, playing with video games written using code, listening to electronic instruments generated by code, and find new ways to interact with friends and family on platforms running on code. I suppose you can say, I like code.
With the Fluora Team, I work on making sure you can interact with your Fluora plant how you want to, whether that be through the Fluora app or other smart home integrations. Most of my work has revolved around developing the Android and iOS versions of our app, and connecting our plant network to other 3P IoT platforms.
Why you make with LEDs:
I believe LEDs provide us a way to create a digital personality in our real, physical world. We can bring the vibrancy and dynamism of the images and animations we are used to seeing on our 2D screens, and inject them into our living environment with the help of some carefully programmed and well-placed bright lights.
With products like Fluora, we are able to further break into the 3D space and imbue our homes, restaurants, lounges, stores, etc. with an ever-changing array of colors that match the mood and character we want to set for the given place at the given moment.
It would be impossible to pick one artist but I love Progressive House, Dubstep, Trance, and Rock. Favorite artists include Knife Party, Green Day, NGHTMRE, and Armin van Buuren.
A VR music festival! Tomorrowland Virtual showed how powerful a multiplayer music festival set in Unreal Engine 5 can be. Now imagine that with virtual reality!
