History[edit]

Lumigon makes smartphones for Android operating systems and related accessories. Three of their devices, the T1, T2 and T2 HD, serve as smartphones and remote controls for televisions.[2] Lumigon was founded in 2009 by CEO Lars Gravesen.[3] He previously founded and owned software companies, including DanTeam, Zyb and Excitor[citation needed]. The name Lumigon is a cmbination of 'Lumière' (French for 'light') and 'Polygon', i.e. light and shape.
