    Any thoughts on building a light testing booth?

    I'm working with a product development company based in Evanston, IL to design a new bike light. Were looking into testing a handful of bike lights already on the market. We want to measure things such as lux, lumens, etc. Has anyone had any experience building something like this or have any suggestions?

    Light and Motion use an independent lab to test their lights using an integrating sphere, and have tested their own lights as well as some select competitor lights:

    Building one yourself that would be accurate... well, good luck! Remember, it's not just about how much light you produce, but where you put it.

    I agree totally with this statement. IMHO the lumen ratings are just for marketing to the first time buyers and folks who need some metric to compare by since they are not sure what they need. A standardized beamshot would be a much better way to demonstrate and compare lights I think.
