The indie co-op puzzle game Chariot now includes a Philips Hue setting in its Xbox One version, meaning the game can take control of however many Hue-compatible bulbs are live in your home and adjust their colors and intensity on the fly. As onscreen enemies attack, your room will turn red, walk through a forest and the lights will glow green, witness a magical explosion and the room will flash white.
Watch the demonstration video below to see the new Xbox One Philips Hue support in action thanks to games developer Frima.
“Chariot has been a great title in our [email protected] portfolio since it launched into Games With Gold past year”.
While many VR systems will draw you out of reality into a virtual world, this approach brings the virtual world into reality, using Philips Hue. While, the Chariot game can be purchased directly from your Xbox One for $14.99. When plants bloom on screen, Hue lights will mimic their shades. Now it’s getting a kick in the enhanced butt with Philips Hue, a completely interactive smart lighting setup. From the outset we have encouraged others to integrate with Philips Hue; from third-party apps to wearable technology to internet services and smart home automations.
Before the syncing capability works, users may need to download the Syfy Sync app connecting their light to the tv show. Headquartered in the Netherlands, Philips posted 2014 sales of Euro 21.4 billion and employs approximately 108,000 employees with sales and services in more than 100 countries.
