The Best Smartphone-Controlled Lightbulbs Are Now Even Better

Apr 02, 2015

Philips Hue, the maker of smartphone-controlled, color-changing lightbulbs, has launched a new, portable lamp that unplugs from the wall and can be carried just about anywhere.

The Hue Go keeps the lights on thanks to a rechargeable battery that lasts up to 3 hours between charges. Like the rest of the lights in the Hue product line, the light syncs up wirelessly to Hue's mobile app, where user's can adjust the lighting between seven preset "moods" or nitpick between 16 million colors on a touchable palette.

But portable mood-lighting doesn't come cheap. The Hue Go will retail for €100 ($109) when it goes on sale in Europe this April, followed by North America this June.
