As the name would suggest, the new Hue Play Gradient Light Tube is both multicolour (as in it being part of the new ‘Gradient’ lineup) and on this occasion is not so much a light strip, but more a ‘tube’ of the kind you might see for fluorescent strip lighting. As with previous ‘Play’ products, the strip is ostensibly designed for use with TVs, although there are sure to be other uses for it.
The new ‘tube’ comes in two lengths and two finishes (black and white), along with having the ability for the colour section of the tube to be angled so its either facing more towards a wall or TV, or more towards the room, for possible party usage. The strip is designed to either sit at the base of your TV or can be mounted on a wall with provided fittings.
The new product will also work with – and replicate – colours on your TV, although in order to take advantage of this functionality, you’ll need both a Hue Bridge and a Hue Sync box, which, before you even take into account the cost of the tube light itself, could easily add up to a few hundred dollars. There’s no mentioned of a specific price at this time.
