Where does Philips Hue come from? I went to Eindhoven to look for clues.

I’m on holiday in the Netherlands until Monday. During this time I’m being wonderfully represented by my colleague Frederick. However, I have not been completely idle, as I also used my time in the Netherlands to visit the Philips Hue headquarters in Eindhoven on Friday. At present, Philips Hue no longer belongs to Philips, the official company name is Signify.

The Philips Hue Play HDMI Sync Box will be available from 15 October. Shortly before the start there are still problems.

I wanted to share my comprehensive test report about the new HDMI Sync Box from Philips Hue with you until today at the latest. With a price of just under 250 Euros, the entertainment device is anything but a cheap affair, so you’ll want to inform yourself thoroughly beforehand. Now I have to inform you: the test report won’t be published soon because I’m still disappointed with the HDMI Sync Box.

In about two weeks, the Philips Hue Play HDMI Sync Box will be launched. I'm already unpacking it for you today.

Since its introduction in mid-September, there’s been a lot of discussion about the Philips Hue Play HDMI Sync Box.

A perfect team: classic table lamps and the new Hue White Filament The new Philips Hue White Filament lamps provides new possibilities.

The new Philips Hue White Filament lamps provides new possibilities.

If you want to use individual Philips Hue LED bulbs, up to now they were best hidden behind a lampshade or other cover. Let’s be honest: the usual Philips Hue bulbs are not really stylish. This has changed with the Philips Hue White Filament lamps that were released last week.
