The Philips Hue Go personal wireless light might be the coolest lighting accessory I’ve ever used. As you can see in the video, it looks like a cereal bowl that’s been filled with light that you can carry around with you. You can turn on the natural dynamic effects feature for a living light color show, or set it to one of 16 million different colors of light with a 300 lumen light output. It’s controllable with the Hue Light app for iOS and Android, but also has a button on the back that allows you to cycle through a bunch of different colors without the need for a smartphone or tablet.
The only downside is that you do need to have a Philips Hue Starter Kit or Hue Bridge in order to use it to its full potential, so if you don’t already have a Hue system set up, that will set you back an extra $50 or so. Still, it’s a great lighting accessory.
You can pick up the Philips Hue Go now.
