The World's First Lamp

Designed for e-Reading

WiT Puts a Smile
on Your Desk

e-Reading made easy

We are in the midst of the second era of reading, where various screens have become the dominant reading medium for people.

While reading on screens brings convenience and entertainment, it has different lighting needs that have, until now, never really been met. The reflection and contrast glare caused by unadjusted lighting inevitably resulted in discomfort for the reader’s eyes.

That’s why BenQ’s lighting team decided to create an illumination solution that cares about every aspect of your e-Reading experience.

Quick Prototyping

Finally, this diligent effort culminated into one single shape, an arc which is destined to solve all lighting problems.
The smooth and inspiring shape resembles the smile which was one everyone's face at completion.

Here comes WiT,

The lamp featuring Smile Curve Technology, that makes your e-Reading sessions more comfortable and pleasant.

Smile Curve Tech

WiT shapes the smile that you read with.

WiT’s uniquely curved shape is the epitome of function merging with aesthetics. Compared with traditional lamps, WiT delivers light evenly across your entire e-Reading area, eliminating the contrast glare. It also enables the user to flexibly adjust the brightness and color temperature (2700K-5700K).

Wide

Wider 35 inch lighting range optimizes working area.

The Smile Curve Technology lights up an expansive 35 inch range, 150% wider than typical lamps on the market, plus it achieves the illuminance of 500 lux at the desk. WiT can illuminate your desktop space more evenly and with a wider spectrum.

Intelligent

Intuitive technology to meet your needs.

With just one touch on the ring to activate the e-Reading mode, the built-in ambient light sensor detects the light level of the environment. WiT then delivers the patented ‘brighter at the sides, darker in the middle’ illumination to reduce the contrast glare and the reflection on your screens.

Tailor-Made

Dimmable Cool White and Warm White, As You Choose

Simply turn the rotary knob, so you can easily fine-tune the color temperatures and the brightness to suit your reading needs. Go with a cooler temperature for your problem-solving tasks; go with the warmer tones for relaxing.

Aesthetics Outside, Technology Inside

A. Flicker-free LED driver IC offers constant and even lighting

B. Ambient light sensor detects environment illumination

C. Curved light guide module widens the illumination area

D. The LED complied with the IEC/EN62471 photobiological safety regulation and does not harm your eyes

Highly Flexible: Bring the Right Light to Where You Need It

Thanks to the fitted ball-joint that optimizes the flexibility of the lamp cap, you can aim the light at any angle that you need. WiT is also equipped with extremely durable torque springs and precise friction control to counter-balance the weight.

Eco-Friendly Materials. Good for You and Good for the Earth.

The light cap uses a lightweight aluminum alloy to dissipate the heat generated by the LED, thereby extending the lifespan of the LED over typical plastic caps. For torque springs, zinc alloy is used to enhance the stability and durability. All WiT materials meet the restrictions in the EU Directive, RoHS (2002/95/EC). WiT has passed international safety standards certification to ensure your safety.
