The Grommet launches products every weekend at 12noon EST. Chatlight has officially launched on their platform, and is now available for purchase there.

Developed by photographer Henry Geddes in 2010, Chatlight was created as a solution to poor lighting situations. With over 300 million users on Skype and 2 billion minutes worth of phone calls per day, Henry saw a need for improved quality during the video chatting experience. Along with Skype came new and popular live streaming applications Periscope and Meerkat, which were later on followed by Facebook Live for verified pages. It was clear to see that future of social media was video, and Henry sought to create a device that would provide bright, clear lighting to optimize video chatting, no matter the platform.

Over a dozen prototypes later, Henry finalized his design, settling on what is today known as the Chatlight. It’s easy to use design, size, mobility and quality make it the perfect product for someone looking to improve the quality of their video chatting, whether it be on Skype for business, on Periscope for fun, or on any of the other nearly dozen applications.

Along with business partner Ian Shiell, the innovative pair launched their final model on Kickstarter, hoping to raise enough funds for their first round of production. The device was a hit, raising nearly $60,000 in just 45 days.

Head to The Grommet to purchase a Chatlight for yourself and experience a world of difference when it comes to your video chats.
