The Nanoleaf Shapes HomeKit-enabled range of flat lights for your wall has been significantly expanded today. Or rather, it shrank. The newest shapes include triangles (with improved capabilities beyond triangles published in the past) and mini-triangles. With this latest update, the shapes you create can be expanded to a whole new universe, including touch panel controls, voice controls, and a music visualizer.

You have been given the opportunity to work with new controls and interactive features that were not previously available to the Triangles line.
