The products - which include StoryLights, SoftPals, LED Candles and Micro lamps - feature Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse and characters from Cars and Monsters Inc. They transform children’s bedrooms into imaginative spaces for reading, playing and sleeping. Children can interact with stories through connected lighting, fall asleep to the nightlights, or benefit from lights that promote healthy sleep patterns.

Brazilian stadiums lit up for kick-off

The eyes of the world are about to focus on Brazil as the South American nation hosts one of the world’s greatest sporting events. And nine of the 12 tournament stadiums will use Philips lighting. 

Eight façades, including Rio’s iconic Maracanã, will be illuminated with Philips LEDs, while five pitches have been equipped with floodlighting that simulates daylight to maximize the performance of players and officials. And the global TV audience of more than three billion will also benefit, as the lighting optimizes the experience for viewers at home, increasing the broadcasting quality of HD, 3D and super slo-mo replays.

A century of research into improving lives

A century of research into improving lives

2014 marks 100 years since Philips Research was established - a landmark that the company will celebrate throughout the year. Anton and Gerard Philips, the company’s founders, created the Natuurkundig Laboratorium in 1914 in Eindhoven, the Netherlands. Since then, Philips’ focus on innovations that touch lives has resulted in more than 165,000 granted patents, including game-changing X-ray tubes, radios that connect continents, pioneering shavers, as well as the very first audio cassettes and CDs. Today, Philips has one of the world’s largest corporate research organizations, employing 1,500 professionals across six locations.
