GadgetGuy’s take – Dyson Lightcycle works
If you can get over the $799 price, then you will get the perfect task light that automatically adjusts for time of day, age and so much more.
For me, the best thing is reducing blue light on my dual monitors by being able to turn on blue light reduction and reduce brightness. Under CFL light those settings looked awful. Under Dyson Lifecyle they look natural.
Depending on budget, you could put a pair beside your bed, but somehow the design is more in keeping with office/study use. I would not mind one near the couch where I occasionally read a book.
In typical Dyson style, it is an over-engineered, minimalist design – a classic keeper and what I expect from Dyson. It appeals to the inner geek with a wallet to match. It is a perfect gift for a person who has everything because they will not have this – yet.
As a sexagenarian, I was surprised to read that I need four times more light than a whippersnapper 20-year-old. But I am guilty of using my smartphone torch to read restaurant menus in dim light when others don’t need to.
