Dyson Lightcycle Morph, the most intelligent light with the worst price

At a world press conference in Milan, Dyson lifted the veil in its new connected luminaire, the Dyson Lightcycle Morph. Its particularity? Offer different types of lighting as needed, but it has a crazy price. A luxurious and intelligent Dyson lamp can track room light and adjust lighting accordingly.

The Dyson Lightcycle Morph lamp offers four modes: Ambient Light allows you to set up a warm atmosphere as if the room was lit by candlelight. Task Light is a mode that reduces eye strain thanks to its white light. There is also a mode that allows you to light a room fully, create dramatic effects, highlighting art, colors, and decorative features – this is Feature Light. Finally, in the indirect light mode, the light is reflected on the wall, the floor, or the ceiling.

Mounted on the stem is an Intelligent Optical Head with 360° manoeuvrability.

To switch between modes and manage the lighting in your room, you will need to have the Dyson Link application in your possession. It is thanks to this application that the Dyson Lightcycle Morph can adapt to your age or your mood in order to offer you the lighting that best suits you. For instance, older users will benefit from more powerful light due to their difficulty in reading or simply more frequent vision problems.

The Dyson Lightcycle Morph is designed around a distinct aluminum-polycarbonate composite stem, rotationally perforated with 16,740 apertures. Mounted on the stem is an Intelligent Optical Head with 360° maneuverability. The lamp incorporates a fleet of sensors capable of determining the time of day, natural and ambient light. This new version of the LightCycle always provides a place for a USB-C port to charge a device.

The intelligent optical head smoothly rotates 360° to bounce light off walls, floors and ceilings.

Dyson re-deploys its heat exchanger technology which allows the six LEDs that make up the LightCycle Morph (three cold and three hot) to be kept at a sufficiently cold power to guarantee a quality of light for 60 years (at 8 hours of lighting per day (at maximum light intensity and whatever the white temperature). Remember that the average lifespan of an LED is around 25 years at a rate of 3 hours of lighting per day.

Indeed, if the concept is interesting enough, its price remains consistent with what Dyson is used to offer. It takes $649.99 for the desk lamp, and $849.99 for the floor stand version. Despite all the technology in these lamps, the prices are still far too high for what such a product offers.
