Admittedly, my nightstand is a mess. A lamp, an IKEA clock, Apple Watch dock and a charger for my iPhone. It’s like the wild west. I’m always interested in solutions that simplify my life and my nightstand is in desperate need of that.
There is a pretty cool Indiegogo campaign going right now that aims to wrap all of the nightstand necessities into one slim and modern package. Luzi offers all of the previously mentioned mainstays plus a few cool tricks like voice control. It’s definitely worth a look.
Luzi is tall and cylindrical with a small display in the bottom third, where it shares space with a built-in speaker. The light itself takes up about 70% of the apparatus. The main feature is the multi-functional light that can provide different shades depending on the situation. It’s all controlled by a voice command system that adjusts the lights, sets the alarm, starts music and a number of other features.
The Bluetooth speakers can play your own songs or pump out white noise during sleep. When two Luzi’s are paired together, stereo audio can be achieved. Another standout feature is the ability for Luzi to communicate with other smart home devices, such as your thermostat or door locks. When you set the alarm at night, it talks to eligible smart home products, adjusts the temperature and makes sure the house is secure.
There are four USB ports on the back of the lamp for charging multiple devices. The base has an optional wireless charging add-on for phones that support that type of power source. A built-in dock for Apple Watch elevates and charges as well. Luzi’s display can show different clock styles, the date, weather and additional information. All told, Luzi is a customizable solution that combines all the charging and organization needs of our devices in one product.
With 28 days left, Luzi has raised 31% of its goal. There is still plenty of time to get in on the action, a pledge of $269 will deliver a lamp come next March. There are discounts available for buying more than one at a time. If you aren’t interested in waiting, take a look at this LED Lamp from TaoTronics that includes a built-in USB charger.
