Google designer Ben Gold tweeted an image of a smart lamp, cleverly called dLight; stating that it “will probably never be sold outside the company. »
So if you’re looking for a Google Assistant-supported smart lamp, know that it’s only for Google employees; as 9to5Google reports. The ultra-modern lamp features a circular base and a slender stem that houses a cylindrical light.
You have to admit, its crisp white color almost makes it look like something you’d find in an Apple store. As noted by Ben Gold, you can move the light to different positions. Which allows you to point it downwards, towards your desk or towards your face during video calls. It also comes with several lighting presets; as well as the possibility of modifying the temperature of the light.
The lamp’s FCC docs indicate internet connectivity and Google Assistant support; since its label has the “Hey Google” logo stamped on it. And while you can’t see the USB-C port in any of the provided images, Ben Gold says it does have a USB-C port; and that it also receives over-the-air updates.
Unfortunately, those of us who aren’t employed by Google won’t be able to get our hands on the dLight. But as 9to5Google points out, this isn’t the first time Google has made an employee-only product. In 2017, the company developed a pair of Google-branded over-ear headphones for its employees.
Ben Gold explains that employees in the United States can order the dLight for free (although he notes that it’s currently out of stock) through the company; as part of Google’s efforts to improve the work-from-health home experience. Google employees are still not forced to return to the office due to the pandemic.
