Artificial Intelligence Tron Lamp

Dec 9, 2016

Category: Tech

One of the biggest hurdles when it comes to integrating services like Apple’s Siri, Microsoft’s Cortana, or Amazon’s Alexa into our lives is finding the right interface. All three companies have done a good job so far – but this newly announced product from GE, what we’re referring to as the Artificial Intelligence Tron Lamp (no official name yet), offers a more interesting approach.

What stands out about this lamp, beyond the fact that it is the first lighting product to feature Amazon’a Alexa technology, is how independent it is. It doesn’t require a hub, a smartphone, or an Echo unit to function. The idea is the user will simply set up this LED lamp and it will be able to do everything from setting an alarm, to getting the day’s news and even pre-heating the oven (a GE oven, we presume). Then, outside of those technical achievements is the look of the thing. The way the lights dance and respond to questions asked of it gives the lamp, or Alexa (or – er – it?) a kind of personality. So much so, in fact, that some have already begun to draw comparisons to Tron, or maybe more menacingly – 2001: A Space Odyssey . Open pod bay doors, Alexa. GE expects to have this available for pre order come early 2017. [Purchase]
