The Litebrush Makes Light Painting as Easy as Waving a Magic Wand


Light painting has become somewhat of a trend in recent years, and the tools used are as diverse as the subjects in the images. From abstract paintings that contain little more than streaks of light, to renderings of actual objects such as cars, to the enhancement of portraits with an LED torch – anything is possible.

That’s what the guys from Wave Gap Labs thought when they set out to create a simple, easy-to-use and affordable light painting accessory. Travis Stevens and Jamie MacDonald, who have been doing light painting for a couple of years, were unhappy with the solutions available on the market, so they decided to come up with their own product. The result is the Litebrush, which is now up on Kickstarter for crowdfunding.


The Litebrush, which comes in a basic and a pro flavor, is basically a strip of LED lights that are fixed to a metal wand with a battery compartment at one end. The basic Litebrush sports 30 LEDs in either red, green, or blue, and can be used to create abstract light paintings in one color. The Litebrush pro on the other hand sports 12 RGB LEDs that can be set to shine in any of 20 colors, both constantly or in a cycle mode.

The Litebrush kickstarter campaign has 43 more days to go, and aims at reaching a funding goal of US-$ 40,000. You can help the project become reality by backing it with as little as $10, though you’ll have to pledge for $55 at least in order to get the basic Litebrush. For $100, you’ll receive a Litebrush pro, and $450 or more gets you a light painting workshop with Travis and Jamie.
