Nanoleaf has introduced private pre-orders for its upcoming Hexagon Light Panels today. The announcement, which came via a marketing email, states that pre-orders are only available to those that signed up to receive more information about the Hexagons, and are listed as shipping on June 30th.

In addition to the new Hexagon shape, the latest panels include signature features from the company’s Canvas and Aurora line. Each Hexagon sports touch controls, which can be used to control the light levels and to play games like Simon.

The Hexagons also include music visualization through Rhythm Scenes. The panels can display up to 16 million different shades or colors and whites, and can utilize tons of scenes already in use with other shapes.

New to the Nanoleaf line is the ability to combine shapes, which starts with the Hexagons. Future shapes from the company will be able to connect directly to the Hexagons, creating tons of possibilities with its 6 sides.

Starter kits for the Hexagon panels start at $199 for a 7 panel set ($179 during the pre-order phase). Other kits include 13 and 19 panel options, with larger sets coming with a slight discount when broken down per panel.

Although pre-orders are only available privately as of now, you can sign up for more information on the company’s site to potentially join in on the next wave.
