I very rarely do product mentions, but this one just captivated me.
The Casper Glow light is designed to sit on a charging pad on your nightstand next to you in bed. Here’s what it does:
Flip it over to turn it on and start a timer that slowly warms the color temperature and dims slowly as you fall asleep.
Spinning it on a flat surface adjusts the brightness. And, if you have two, you can sync them so you spin one to adjust the brightness for both.
If you pick it up and carry it (say, for a late night trip to the loo or to check on the baby), give it a shake and it will slightly raise the light level.
There’s more to it, but you get the idea. This is a clever product. Clever enough that I wouldn’t be surprised if it came from Apple.
But it actually comes from Casper, the company known for selling mattresses directly to consumers.
If this captures your interest at all, check the linked article. There are a ton of images and animated GIFs that show off all these features and more, plus there’s an iFixit worthy teardown of the innards.
Here’s a link to the Casper Glow Light product page.
Send me one, Casper, and I’ll take it for a spin.
