1. A method of augmenting an illumination perception by a plurality of wearers of a plurality of head-mountable computing devices adapted to communicate with a lighting system, each of the plurality of head-mountable computing devices including at least one transparent display module for covering a field of view of each wearer of the plurality of wearers, the method comprising:
determining a desired light condition for each of said plurality of wearers in a space;
determining an actual light condition for each of said plurality of wearers in said space; and
displaying a semi-transparent image on the at least one transparent display module of each of the plurality of head-mountable computing devices to filter a light passing through the at least one transparent display module in case the actual light condition differs from the desired light condition;
communicating the desired light condition for each of the plurality of said wearers in said space and the actual light condition for each of the plurality of said wearers in said space to the lighting system including a plurality of light sources, for illuminating said space; and
adjusting a light output of at least some of the light sources in response to said communication;
wherein said adjusting comprises adjusting said light sources in response to a plurality of the desired light conditions and a plurality of the actual light conditions communicated to the lighting system by the plurality of head-mountable computing devices within said space.
