MI POW PLAYBUL B
3 Combining a 3W speaker and a 3W LED light, PLAYBULB fits in a light socket and connects to your iPhone through Bluetooth. It’s larger than the Philips Hue as it’s entirely selfcontained, and doesn’t use a central bridge like the Hue. It offers only white light too, though it can be dimmed and brightened using a free iOS app. The sound is mediocre, with a muddy audio and very little bass, but it works quite well as an alarm. Music and light can gradually increase in intensity, which is welcome, but your songs must be picked from a playlist. Ian Osborne
An interesting novelty alarm. Not a great audio reproduction, but who’d expect one? Watch it in action at bit.ly/1sUBhMm.
