Description A great addition to any sensory space. Enjoy the pleasure of touching the colorful fiber optic strands; the fiber optic strands are made to be touched! Available in 2 meters or 3 meters. Luminea Fibers are scalable and integrate with other Luminea products, allowing for gradual growth of your sensory environment over time! Connect with products like the Luminea Bubble Tube, Lumina Lamp, or Luminea Planet and watch them light up simultaneously or use them independent of one another!
How To Use It Simply connect the fibers to the included light source and plug it in. The default setting is auto mode; in this mode colors change without any controller needed. The Luminea Fibers are compatible with many control devices (not included) that allow the user to interact with light like never before! Control options include:
Standard Wired Switch: Insert any standard wired switch (3.5 mm/ ⅛-in) into the switch inputs on the back of the light source. Insert the switch into the “auto” input for an on/off function. Insert the switch into the “1,2,3” input to allow the user to scan through colors with each hit of the switch. Try the Wobble Switch or Buddy Button!
Button Six: Press one of the six colored buttons to change the color of the fibers corresponding to the color of the button that was pressed.
Button 1: Control your fiber optic lights without any wires! Five different modes allow users to interact with the fiber optic lights in a variety of ways!
Android Tablet: Download the free Luminea App (available in the google play store) and interact with light as never before! Try drawing your finger through a maze; when your finger is on the path the lights turn on but when your finger leaves the path the lights turn off. Try touching a small target on a dartboard or a clown's big red nose; when you successfully hit the target the lights will turn on! Watch the video to see more activity ideas. Requires the Luminea Router.

Target a wide range of therapeutic skills with the fiber optic lights:
Attention & Focus: Changes of color in the fiber optic strands boost the user’s attention and focus.
Perception & Self-Awareness: Contact with the optical fibers helps the user perceive different parts of their body.
Cause-Effect: The fiber optics shine brightly through the strands in a broad range of bright colors making it easy to recognize the result of hitting a switch or tapping a screen.
Communication: The effects of the fiber optic lights lend to exchanges such as “turn it on”, “change the color”, and “make it go”.
Social Skills: Sharing, taking turns, and compromise are just a few of the skills that can be targeted while interacting with the fiber optic lights.
Fine Motor and Visual Perception: Use the fiber optic lights in conjunction with the Luminea app to target skills such as fine motor precision, finger isolation, and visual discrimination.
Academic Skills: What a fun way to learn about colors!
It’s highly recommended to read the user manual before using the device.
The product should always be used under adult supervision.
It is recommended a periodic inspection of the fibers to detect breaks in the fiber strips, in which case the complete mallet should be replaced.
The fiber optic is designed to create an optical effect and users can gently touch and twist it. Even so, it should never be placed in the mouth, biting, stretching, knotting, use as a rope to tie hands or feet, sit on top of the mallet, use as a whip or submerge it in water. There is a risk of strangulation.

To avoid eye damage, do not look directly at the lens of the light source.
This product is designed for indoor use only.
People prone to epileptic seizures should consider the effects this light effect can have on them.
