Bytedance, the company behind TikTok, has just announced the Dali Smart Tutoring Lamp T5 – a clever gadget designed to help kids with their homework. With many kids bound with online schooling, this device may prove to be another success for the organization.
The Dali Smart Lamp uses a double-wing lamp holder design similar to the technology you would find in an operating room. Its creators say this sort of “shadowless lamp” is meant to limit the need for the child to want to tilt their heads to read words, thereby preventing incorrect sitting posture.
The Dali Smart Lamp is equipped with a phone-size screen with touchscreen functions, an AI camera, and has intelligent coaching features integrated. It can help a child with pronunciation and has intelligent fingertip search for words and calculation problem explanation to help solve children’s homework problems.
The lamp comes with an app, called Daily Love Tutoring, that parents can use to plan the child’s homework and synchronize progress in real-time. Parents can also use the app to access the Lamp’s camera even facetime the child while he/she is at the desk.
The smart lamp is already on sale in China at a retail price of 799 yuan (~$119), but there is no news if the device will be launched worldwide.
