Backlight is ambilight system for eye protection that I plan to make for Iris. I will to Kickstarter or something.
If somebody wants I can make also a tutorial for DIY. At the momment it just uses LED strip and Arduino.
The idea is that by making constant illumination we will reduce the time for the eye muscles to respond from 3 minutes to 1 minute and this will greatly reduce the stress of your eyes.
There is also cool increase of the vision field and it will look like your monitor is bigger which is cool
You can see Iris backlight in action in this video.
