Up until now, heat-sink technology has been being used primarily in satellite technology, and Dyson is the first to use it in a consumer lighting context. Dyson set out to not only create a lamp for the future in terms of sustainability, but also in terms of practicality. The lamp’s arm is able to move back and forth on three axes, meaning it can go not only up and down like most desk lamps, but also back and forth and around in circles. This means the light can be moved up for a wide, diffuse light, or down to for a task light. Furthermore, the LEDs give off a warm, golden light you might actually want to work in.

The lamp itself, with clean, elegant lines is quite the looker, and is available with blue, black, red, gray or white accents.

    Important to shed and share light on eco’n’viromental subjects when and where we can.

    Heat sinks ARE used in all sorts of consumer grade LED lights! Overhyped, just like his father’s products.

    Try “led lamp heat sink” in google images.

    “Up until now, heat-sink technology has been being used primarily in satellite technology”
    – Um, and every single computing device you’ve probably ever used . For that matter, just about every electronic device that makes heat uses some kind of heat-sink – whether it’s a heat-pipe design like this lamp, or fins that utilize moving air to help draw away heat faster. There must have been a reference to satellite technology in the press release for it to get worked into the article in that way.
