Google has created a smart lamp that you will probably never be able to buy

If you’re looking for a Google Assistant-supported smart lamp, you’ll be very disappointed to know that Google has created one, but it’s only for employees, as reported. 9to5Google. Google designer Ben Gold tweeted an image of the lamp, cleverly called dLight, noting that it “probably will never be for sale outside of the company.”

The ultra-modern lamp features a circular base and a slender post that houses a cylindrical light and, yes, its bright white color makes it almost look like something you’d find in an Apple store. As noted by Gold, you can move the light to different positions, allowing you to aim the light at your desk or your face during video calls. It also comes with several lighting presets, as well as the ability to change the light temperature.

The lamp’s FCC documents indicate internet connectivity and Google Assistant support, as 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, Gold says it ships with one, and is also getting 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.

Gold says employees in the United States can order the dLight for free (though he notes it’s currently out of stock) through the company, as part of Google’s efforts to improve the work experience. home. Google employees are still not forced to return to the office due to the pandemic.
