The Dyson Lightcyle Morph is one such product. It8217;s been in our living room for a few weeks and we can honestly say it8217;s one of the best bits of everyday tech we8217;ve seen for some time.
For several years Dyson has developed task-orientated lighting for those who do close work 8211; from artists to architects 8211; but the Lightcycle Morph takes this a stage further with a light that can be used for tasks, as well as ambient lighting.
As you8217;d expect, the product features some stunning design and technology. In addition to controls on the light arm itself, you can also fine-tune operation in the associated app. The first part of the arm can be moved around 360-degrees, while the top part can twist around as well, so you can position the light wherever you want.
You can get the Lightcycle to emit the right type of light depending on the lighting in the room. It can automatically track daylight using a new algorithm and adjust accordingly. Or you can just move it between stark task lighting and a warm light for the evening.
It8217;ll even ask you how old you are when you set it up, too. Yes, you guessed it 8211; it8217;ll deliver stronger light for older people, whether they8217;re working away or simply reading to wind-down in the evening.
This longevity is thanks in part to Dyson8217;s self-developed heat pipe tech, which keeps the LEDs cool. Certainly, we8217;ve found the lamp stays fairly cool even when in super bright task mode.
You can also use it as an ambient light 8211; simply twist the arm to bounce light off the walls, or you can retract the arm and 8216;dock8217; it so it shines down through the stem of the lamp, giving you a nice diffused glow effect that spreads light through a room.

For the Lightcycle Morph, there are numerous options you can configure. As well as the basic stuff 8211; switching it on and off and controlling the light temperature manually 8211; you can schedule it to turn on too. It can be programmed to turn on at random intervals if you8217;re away, for example.
