Google launches a smart lamp you can’t buy

Up to now, Google has launched many smart application products, such as Google Home and Google Nest, but in fact, Google also has a smart lighting product dLight. It’s moving, but unfortunately Google dLight seems to be only sold to its own employees, not to the outside world.

According to 9to5google, Google product designer Ben Gold posted the product on Twitter. The dLight has a round base with a T-shaped bracket attached, and an oval light panel above it, which can be folded up to 90 degrees up and down depending on the user’s needs.

“9to5google” believes that this design is very suitable for video calls; dLight also supports Google Assistant voice control, and will also be connected to the Google Home app like other Google smart home products. But unfortunately, although this smart light is suitable for video calls, it does not have a built-in microphone.

On the other hand, although the power cable is not visible in the Ben Gold picture, the dLight has a USB-C port and can also provide OTA software updates, which may provide more features in the future. According to FCC filings, the dLight supports 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, and the hardware itself is produced by Foxconn subsidiary HCC Teletron (HK) Technology Co.
