Along with today's announcement of a new V11 cordless vacuum cleaner, Dyson also announced updates to its lighting products and air purifiers. The first is the Dyson Lightcycle, your desk and floor lamp that can automatically adjust your lighting temperature according to ambient light or time of day. The high-end lamp also includes a programmed lighting mode offered by gadgets such as the new Casper Glow: now you can set wake-up and sleep times so that they adjust gradually as you prepare to raise or lower the speed.
Designed as you expect from Dyson products. It has a new control panel on top of the bulb (which Dyson says can last up to 60 years) that uses touches and tactile capacitive slides to control power, lighting temperature and brightness. The buttons at the bottom allow you to activate the mood mode that allows the Lightcycle to change the lighting temperatures based on the natural light in the room.
On the side of the stand, there is a single USB-C port. Dyson did not return to us in time for publication of the output power, he only described the speeds as "fast" for smartphones, "medium-fast" for devices such as a Nintendo Switch, and slower for larger devices such as a laptop. We will update this publication if we obtain an exact number.
You are also connected to the Dyson application where you can set your location so that the Lightcycle can match the lighting to the exact lighting conditions depending on where you are. I imagine that this function will not be used frequently because I am not sure who travels with the lamp on his desk as often as necessary to periodically update his location. However, a feature that is interesting and can only be activated through the application are precise lighting modes, such as study, precision (Dyson says it is designed for engineers, artists or other manual work) and to relax. You can also add your age so that Lightcycle adapts its brightness to a level that you consider appropriate for your vision.
In addition to the lamp, Dyson is also updating its air purifier that was launched last year with a miniaturized version for tables. The new Dyson Pure Cool Me (a mouthful of a name) has a ball-shaped top that can be tilted back and forth to control the direction of air flow. It also includes oscillation modes and a timer through the remote control. Unlike Lightcycle or Pure Cool Link, the new Pure Cool Me will not be able to synchronize with the Dyson application. The company says it is designed for personal use instead of to refresh and clean the entire room, so it does not seem necessary to add features of the application.
Unlike its Larger counterpart, The Pure Cool Me does not tell you the types of microns and impurities that it removes from your room while it is in use. However, you can still use the remote control to find out how your filter is doing and see when to change it. According to the company, the filters will last approximately one year with daily use.
The Dyson Lightcycle has already been launched in China, but will be available worldwide in April. Orders start today on Dyson.com, starting at $ 599.99 for the desk lamp and $ 899.99 for the floor lamp. However, despite these high prices, expect to use only the Dyson Link application to control the lamps. It will not be sent with third-party functionality with smart assistants such as Alexa or Google Assistant. Pure Cool Me is now available through Dyson for $ 349.99, and will arrive at Target, Best Buy and Amazon in April.
