If at first you don’t succeed, make nearly 900 prototypes until you nail it. That’s how the saying goes, right? At least, it is at Dyson HQ, where the last two years have been spent developing the Lightcycle. This long-lasting LED lamps uses Heat Pipe tech and keeps shining consistently for 60 years without having to change bulbs. Like everything Dyson, the body of the Lightcycle too is a piece of art in itself, with a whole lot of scientific research thrown in, that gives it that extra flavour. Leave it on Auto mode and it uses its time, date and location driven algorithm to calculate the colour temperature and brightness of daylight, no matter where in the world you might be. A 32-bit microprocessor on this task light continually interprets daylight data through satellite validation, communicating it to the optical driver for dynamic colour tuning. It has seven modes: Study, Relax, Precision, Boost, Wake-up, Sleep and Away (which allows it to function as a security light) but when hooked up to the Dyson Link app you can tinker with the temperature and brightness and create your own settings, or allow it to adjust automatically based on your age and current lighting conditions. Use it to study and you can kiss goodbye to eye strain and fatigue. The Lightcycle desk light for your desk costs ₹39,990 and can be ordered from
