Sol Smart Light

The Sol Smart Light is now up for grabs and is quite an interesting item. Designed and developed by American giant GE, this smart device can assist you in a varied number of things thanks to its connectivity with the popular Alexa assistant. So as it’s clearly stated in its name it’s a lamp, a quite nice one so it seems, it could very well have come out of Kubrick’s 1984 movie, should we hear Hal’s voice we would’n’t be surprised…but it’s Alexa we hear and we can ask her to play a song, order dinner or read us the news to keep up with this fast paced world. Amazon’s assistant will also tell you the time, turning the ring shaped lamp into a classic clock lighting the hours and minute pointer, you may also control the light’s temperature manually, from a warm yellow to a more productive sharp white to get work done. An interesting take on an otherwise overlooked object. watch the video below
