LED strip lights are increasingly popular in home-­entertainment setups. But GE’s Cync Dynamic Effects Neon-Shape Smart Lights are a little different from the kind most of us are familiar with. The neon rope lights include embedded microphones, which allow them to dynamically respond to the beat of the music or sounds from the TV. The product is a dream for anyone looking to create their own light shows or make their living-­room viewing experience feel immersive.
