The Dyson Lightcycle and Pure Cool Me are designed to help you see and breathe better

The Dyson Lightcycle and Pure Cool Me are designed to help you see and breathe better

Other than the new V11, Dyson U.S. is now also taking orders for the Dyson Lightcycle and Pure Cool Me.

Let’s talk about the Dyson Lightcycle first, which is an interesting-looking light that Dyson says will maintain its brightness and light quality for 60 years. This is possible because the lamp has built-in heatpipes to cool the LEDs.

The Dyson Lightcycle is also able to adjust its brightness and color temperature automatically throughout the day. This is achieved through a combination of ambient light sensing and an algorithm in the light’s microprocessor that takes date, time, and location into consideration. Because the Lightcycle connects to the Dyson Link app, a highly-personalized light experience is possible. For example, the light takes into account your age when it is adjusting brightness.

The Dyson Lightcycle offers three preset light modes: Relax, Study, and Precision. If you need a higher intensity light, there’s a Boost button that ups the brightness for 20 minutes. Of course, you can also touch to adjust brightness and color temperature to taste. According to the specs, the Lightcycle’s brightness ranges from 100 to 1,000 lux, while the color temperature can go from 2,700 to 6,500K. Also, the Lightcycle has a built-in infrared sensor to detect movements, so the light will turn on when you’re near, and off once you’re away from it for two minutes. Heck, it even has an integrated USB-C port that you can use to charge your device.

But that’s not all. Notice the weighing beam-like design of the Dyson Lightcycle? This is to allow for what Dyson calls “3 Axis Glide” motion. In short, a gentle touch of the arm is enough to move it. You can adjust the arm’s elevation, pull it closer, as well as well turn it 360°. Dyson claims the mechanism doesn’t use any springs or pivots, and the arm won’t droop over time.

Dyson is selling two versions of the Lightcycle: Lightcycle Desk and Lightcycle Floor, priced at US$600 and US$900 respectively. As their names imply, the Lightcycle Desk is meant to be placed on a table, while the Lightcycle Floor is a free-standing light.

Update, May 8: The Dyson Lightcycle Desk and Lightcycle Floor will be available on shop.dyson.com.sg and at major departmental and electrical stores from July 2019. They're priced at S$799 and S$1,199 respectively.

 

Dyson Pure Cool Me

Next up is the Dyson Pure Cool Me. Calling it its “first personal purifying fan”, the Pure Cool Me is a desktop fan designed to project filtered air directly at you using Dyson’s Core Flow technology. To change the angle of the highly focused air stream, all you need to do is to adjust the dome at the top of the fan. The fan can rotate from side to side as well to deliver airflow through a 70˚ range.

According to Dyson, the US$350 Pure Cool Me uses a sealed filter that combines activated carbon and a glass HEPA layer. This filter is able to capture gases and 99.97% of pollutants, as well as allergens as small as 0.3 microns.

Update, May 8:

The Dyson Pure Cool Me personal purifying fan is available from June 2019 on shop.dyson.com.sg and at major departmental and electrical stores at the recommended retail price of S$499. Two colorways are available: White/Silver and Gunmetal/Copper.
