Google Develops A Smart Lamp You Won’t Be Able To Buy

This might come as a huge disappointment to Assistant core users as this newly developed Smart lamp is only meant for employees, as reported by 9to5Google.

Assistant Smart Lamp dLight

designer Ben Gold tweeted out an image of the lamp, cleverly called the dLight, noting it “will likely never be for sale outside of the company.”

The ultra-modern lamp features a circular base and thin post that houses a cylindrical light, and, admittedly, its bright white colour almost makes it look like something you’d find at an Apple store.

As noted by Gold, you can move the light into different positions, letting you point the light downwards towards your desk or at your face during video calls. It also comes with several lighting presets, as well as the ability to change the temperature of the light.

The lamp’s FCC documents indicate internet connectivity and support for Assistant, 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 does come with one, and that it also gets over-the-air updates.

Sadly, 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-the-ear headphones for its workers.

Gold says employees located in the US can order the dLight for free (although he notes it’s currently on backorder) through the company, as part of Google’s efforts to improve the work from home experience. Google’s employees still aren’t obligated to return to the office due to the pandemic.
