Extrasensory Devices based in Palo Alto, California was founded by James Flynn and Abraham Farag . Together they launched Luxi on Kickstarter with one simple goal: that of bringing professional light metering to almost anyone. Before Luxi, light metering required expensive dedicated hardware, a fact which unfortunately left a lot of amateur and newly professional photographers out in the cold. Thus Luxi for iPhone was born, and it was a huge success. They raised over $120,000 from over 5,000 backers on Kickstarter, and now Luxi is widely for sale both in the United States and around the world.
