The times when lamps were just lamps have passed. Now, tech companies are more ambitious setting goals to make not just a high-quality lighting device with enhanced functionality but a high-tech gadget with impressive specs. A great example is a recent Indiegogo project called Olie Lamp.
With its minimalistic design, the lamp can be placed on a desk or on the floor. At the same time, Olie Lamp comes with a few hi-tech features. One of them is an integrated Qi-station intended for wireless charging of smartphones and other mobile devices. However, the floor Olie Lamp doesn’t have a Qi-module does not have, but just like the desk model, it can be remotely controlled via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi.
Apart from that, both Olie Lamp models support voice recognition – they are integrated with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant. Therefore, the lamp can be controlled with voice commands. However, if such an option is unacceptable in certain situations, the lighting can be adjusted with a smartphone app.
Olie Smart Lamp Intelligent Lighting Collection is currently available for pre-order. For this price, the bundle includes both a voice control module and a wireless charging station.
