Dyson’s new ambient light promises to last up to 60 years …

Along with today’s announcement of a new V11 cordless vacuum, Dyson also announced updates to its lighting and air purifiers products. The first is the Dyson Lightcycle, your desk and floor lamp that can automatically adjust its lighting temperature based on ambient light or the time of day. The high-end lamp also includes a scheduled lighting mode offered by gadgets like the new Casper Glow – you can now set wake and sleep times to gradually adjust as you prepare to move up or down.

Everything about the Lightcycle is overdesigned as you would expect from Dyson products. It has a new control panel above the bulb (which Dyson says can last up to 60 years) that uses touch and capacitive touch slides to control power, lighting temperature and brightness. Buttons along the bottom allow you to activate Ambient Mode which allows the Lightcycle to change lighting temperatures based on the natural light it encounters in the room.

Along the side of the mount, there is a single USB-C port. Dyson didn’t get back to us in time for the power output post, only describing the speeds as “fast” for smartphones, “medium-fast” for devices like a Nintendo Switch, and slower for larger devices like a Nintendo Switch. laptop. We will update this post if we get an exact number.

The Lightcycle can be adjusted to help your eyes.

You’re now also connected to the Dyson app where you can set your location so the Lightcycle can match the lighting to the exact lighting conditions based on where you are. I imagine this feature won’t be used often because I’m not sure who is traveling with your desk lamp often enough to periodically update its location. One interesting feature that can only be activated through the app, though, is precise lighting modes like studio, precision (Dyson says it’s designed for engineers, artists, or other handiwork), and relaxation. You can also add your age so that the Lightcycle adjusts its brightness to a level that it deems appropriate for your vision.

In addition to the lamp, Dyson is also updating its air purifier that launched last year with a miniaturized version for tables. The new Dyson Pure Cool Me (a bite of a name) has a ball-shaped top that can be tilted back and forth to control airflow direction. It also includes oscillation modes and a timer via the remote control. Unlike the Lightcycle or Pure Cool Link, the new Pure Cool Me will not be able to sync with the Dyson app. The company says this is designed for personal use rather than for freshening up and cleaning the entire room, so it doesn’t seem necessary to add app functionality.

Unlike its larger counterpart, the Pure Cool Me won’t tell you the types of microns and impurities it removes from your room while in use. However, you can still use the remote to find out how your filter is doing and when to change it. According to the company, the filters will last about a year with daily use.

The Dyson Lightcycle has already been launched in China, but will be available globally in April. Orders start today at Dyson.com, starting at $ 599.99 for the desk lamp and $ 899.99 for the floor lamp. However, despite those high prices, expect to use only the Dyson Link app to control the lamps. It won’t ship with third-party functionality with smart assistants like Alexa or Google Assistant. Pure Cool Me is available now through Dyson for $ 349.99, hitting Target, Best Buy, and Amazon in April.
