Philips has been fluctuating a Hue operation of intelligent home light bulbs with a accumulation of list lamps for a while now. But a existent preference of lamps, like a Hue Beyond or a Hue Phoenix, all have a identical emanate of looking some-more like strange, intense space jellyfish than, we know, tangible list lamps.
Today, a association has announced some new Hue lamps — a Philips Hue White Ambiance Wellness and a Philips Hue White Ambiance Wellner — that clearly uncover that a company’s days of conceptualizing space-age list lamps are… not entrance to an finish anytime soon.
It’s not that they demeanour bad, per se; of a two, a Wellness roughly approaches normalcy for what you’d design a flare to demeanour like. (I’m unequivocally not certain what Hue was aiming for with a blob-shaped Wellner.) And yes, there is a apparent resolution of simply shopping a unchanging Philips Hue tuber and adhering it in my boring, aged table lamp. But if Philips is going to make these premade lamps, it is too most to ask for one that doesn’t demeanour like it came out of a scholarship novella movie? we theory a round, soothing figure is kid-friendly.
Both a Wellness and a Wellner are already accessible in England, and they are set to cost $99.99 when they recover in America in mid-June.
Correction: The Hue Wellness and Wellner will be accessible in mid-June, not mid-July as this post creatively stated.
