We may all soon be talking to our desk lamps
This voice-activated desk lamp is unthinkably expensive.
Lumigent, a voice-controlled robotic smart lamp, was on display at CES 2017, and we got a hands-on demo.
Note: This demo was filmed in a very loud convention center. We took Lumigent for another spin when things calmed down, and had more success getting it to respond on first command. The pre-release unit still wasn’t 100 percent accurate, but our bigger concern is the exhausting act of saying “Hi, Lumi” for every command. Then there is the price, but more on that later.
Created by Japanese company Cerevo, the robotic 10W LED lamp responds to the commands “turn on,” “turn off,” “darker,” and “brighter.” You can even ask it to change its position toward an object within view of its 8MP downward-facing camera, which can take and upload photos of documents and items sitting in front of it.
Cerevo was named a CES 2017 Innovation Awards Honoree. It will be released in fall 2017, and will cost a staggering $400 to $700, according to the company.
