Philips released a new addition to its line of iPhone-connected lights, the Hue Go.
The new product is a WiFi-enabled portable light that brings portability and autonomy to the company’s iOS-connected Hue smart lighting range of products.
Hue Go features a rechargeable internal battery for a guaranteed three hours of use when is not on the base, and its bowl-like shape makes it possible to be positioned in various ways so it can serve multiple functions as an accent light.
“Philips Hue Go can be moved from the garden to the living room to the bedroom without the worry of wires; letting you create and enjoy a new ambience each time. It can also be positioned in different ways to adapt to your needs; enhance a living space by positioning it to face a wall washing it with light, add ambience to an intimate dinner by placing it as a center piece on the table or focused on a piece of work by directing the light where you need it.”
The key feature is its ability to reproduce more than 16 million colors, which can be chosen via onscreen controls in Philips’ iOS app or another hundreds of apps that take advantage of the Hue API.
In addition, Hue Go also includes a built-in control button that allows you to change the color of the light to one of several scenes even when your iPhone isn’t nearby. You can select between Cozy Candle, Sunday Coffee, Meditation, Enchanted Forest, and Night Adventure, and the company says each one of these color schemes has a unique mix of colors.
Philips Hue Go will go on sale in the U.S. at the end of May or in early June, and it will cost at $99.95.
