Under the hood, the Lune sports a capacitor to harness the electromagnetic energy that your phone emits when it’s being called, as well as a controller for its LED lights. While it feels a bit like a gimmick, there’s plenty of potential for Lune’s notification to actually be useful — and if it truly doesn't use up your phone’s battery life, all the better.
