Philips today announced a new addition to its popular line of iPhone-connected lights, the Hue Go. Hue Go is a WiFi-enabled portable light that connects to and functions like the company's existing Hue lights, but it can be moved from its base to any room in the house.

Hue Go has a rechargeable internal battery that lasts for up to three hours when removed from the base, and its bowl-like shape lets it be positioned in several different 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 light connects to an existing Hue Bridge and it can be controlled with the Philips Hue iOS app or any of the hundreds of apps that take advantage of the Hue API. Like the rest of the color-enabled Hue lights, there are 16 million color choices available. It works with Philips Hue and Friends of Hue products.

Hue Go also has a built-in control button that will let you change the color of the light to one of several included scenes even when your iPhone isn't nearby. Presets include Cozy Candle, Sunday Coffee, Meditation, Enchanted Forest, and Night Adventure, and Philips says each one of these color schemes features a unique mix of colors.

Philips Hue Go will be available in the U.S. at the end of May or in early June, and it will be priced at $99.95. Like other Hue lights, it will be available in the Apple Store, at Best Buy, and on Amazon.com.

I really like these Hue products. Wish they would come down in price just a bit.

Me, too.

I'm about three years from being ready to build a home. I hope that Apple, Philips, Tesla, and others use that time to make my dream of a smart, efficient, solar-powered, geothermally-heated and cooled palace an affordable reality.

I'll gladly spend € 99 if it means I don't have to constantly move my lamps and cables from the garden to all around the house itself.

Oh wait. I never do that.

---------------------

What I really hate about those Hue lamps (not the bulbs) is you can basically throw them away when something breaks down, since it's all custom build stuff.

The problem with this useless item is that it doesn't actually put out any useful level of light. It just looks nice.

It says right in the article "...so it can serve multiple functions as an accent light."

Sure seems like an answer in search of a problem.

I suppose the Philips product planning committee thought it seemed like a good idea at the time.
