Frosted glass build
Orbnext is built from frosted glass, giving it a high-end aesthetic.
You'll keep Orbnext powered with a Micro-USB cable.
You can set the Orbnext to fade through a multicolor cycle, but you can't customize a cycle of your own.
The Orbnext app is a bit sparse, but includes a few basic presets. These include color alerts for the weather and the stock market.
You'll also have two modes of color control -- a "Lamp" mode with 12 quick color presets, and a "Palette" mode with a more comprehensive color selector.
Orbnext also has its own channel on IFTTT, which is where things get really interesting. With over a hundred other channels capable of triggering Orbnext to change colors, your notification options are quite expansive.
One recipe that I found especially useful: turn the Orbnext red whenever the boss emails.
You could also use Orbnext to notify you of things like new Twitter followers or Facebook notifications.
