Google dLight: Employee only smart lamp detailed in FCC photos
In February, a designer at Google shared information about dLight, an employee-only smart lamp. While Ben Gold seemed free to part with dLight details at the time, he has since deleted his Twitter thread. However, the FCC has since published of the dLight, which is manufactured by HCC Teletron in Hong Kong.
For context, the appearance of the dLight on the FCC does not suggest that Google plans to release the smart lamp. Instead, the dLight required FCC approval because of its Google Assistant and Wi-Fi connectivity. Accordingly, one photo shows a QE code for setting up the dLight quickly with Google Assistant or Google Home.
According to the FCC, the dLight has a rotating lamp pole that can be adjusted by 45° left or right. Also, the lamp pole allows people to change the lamp angle by 180° and move its height from 442 mm to 658 mm. Incidentally, other photos show the dLight in use, with Google having designed it to improve work from home (WFH) offices.
With that in mind, Google has included brightness and colour temperature sliders. Seemingly, you can adjust the dLight's colour temperature using voice controls too. It remains to be seen how many dLight smart lamps Google will produce; Ben Gold mentioned them only being available to Google's US employees, at least initially.
