Google created a smart lamp, but you can't buy it
Google provides users with a wide range of products, ranging
from wireless earbuds to smartphones. There are also a few smart home devices
available, such as Chromecast, security cameras, and smart displays. Google has
also developed a smart lamp, but you won't be able to purchase one because it
is not yet available to everyone.
Google's designer Ben Gold posted a photo of the lamp on
Twitter, adding that it "will likely never be for sale outside of the
company." The product is known as "delight" by the company. It is
intended to provide users with "optimal lighting for video calls." As
more people work from home these days, this could come in handy for such use
According to the images, the lamp has a circular base and a
thin post that houses a cylindrical light. It will only be available in a
single bright white color. The smart lamp even allows you to change the
brightness and color temperature.
Google Assistant can be used to control the lamp, according
to Google. To control it, one must use the Google Home app. The lamp also has a
USB-C port, which is not visible in the photos, but the company's designer
claims it does, implying that it is rechargeable. According to the cited
source, the lamp can also receive over-the-air updates.
This smart lamp was created by Google's internal team and is
only available to Google employees. Furthermore, the search giant is not
charging for this lamp and is offering it for free, but it is only available to
those based in the United States.
Eligible users can obtain it from the internal store or
website. Furthermore, this is not the first time the software behemoth has
created an employee-only product. In addition, the company produced a pair of
Google-branded over-the-ear headphones for its employees in 2017. The most
recent attempt is to improve its employees' work-from-home experience.
