In the near future, highly dynamic light sources will be embedded in the areas in which we live and work, as well as in the objects within these areas. All these light elements will be connected, and digitally controlled. This development will turn our environments into lighting platforms that will not only allow us to observe our surroundings and perform our tasks, but can also support many other functions and activities. Furthermore, through sensor networks, such platforms will have knowledge about their environment, and will be able to autonomously respond to users. This vision requires us to rethink the way we interact with light as well as the way light interacts with us.
