Various Light Modes

Switching between the different modes Ancess Q has to offer couldn’t be easier, thanks to its included controller and OLED panel.

  • Twice Mode: this allows you to blend two different colours together, like different shades of purple-red or green-red.
  • Panorama Mode: this mode smoothly transitions from one colour to the next.
  • SOS Mode: Enabling this mode makes the Ancess Q blink in a single colour repeatedly at quick intervals, signalling the need for emergency assistance.

Build & Design

The Ancess Q’s panel looks like it’s been ripped straight out of a sci-fi movie, with its malleable rectangular structure and honeycomb-like light arrangement. It sports a fairly low-key design that should blend in just fine with most households (especially if you use its included desk stand) and its all-black controller sort of looks like an old-school music player with a four-direction pad at its centre.

The panel itself is ruggedly built and delightfully flexible so you can expect it to keep up with you even during the most demanding of trips or jobs.

What’s it like to use?

Operating the Ancess Q is as simple as can be, whether you latch it onto its desk stand or utilize its magnetic nature to slap it onto a variety of surfaces, like car hoods or refrigerator doors. Its flexibility even allows you to focus the lights more on a specific area or spread them out to light up a wider space depending on how you bend the panel.

Using the controller is as simple as can be on account of the easy-to-understand layout of the controls and the nifty LED screen that shows you exactly what you’re doing as you’re cycling through the options.
