This Pixel Pill stand appears to be like equal elements helpful and ridiculous

After a flurry of AI-related bulletins at I/O, Google unveiled the Pixel Pill and its decidedly Nest Hub-like dock. We have been fortunate sufficient to get our palms on it, however we weren’t very impressed with the dock. Forward of the pill’s industrial availability, sensible dwelling accent maker Wasserstein has launched a brand new dock for the Pixel Pill’s dock, bringing in a key function Google missed out on — tilt.


Google’s dock for the Pixel Pill serves just a few important features. It holds the pill in place, fees it, works like a speaker, and allows Hub Mode on the pill. Nonetheless, by design, the dock eliminates the power to tilt the pill for higher viewing when standing up.

That is the place the Wasserstein Adjustable Stand for the Pixel Pill is available in. The stand has a capsule formed base topped off with a ball-and-socket joint holding up a platform the place Google’s dock matches. The design shares an uncanny resemblance with the corporate’s current vary of adjustable stands for the Google Nest Hub and such. Apparently, the ball joint permits for 2 actions: tilt (up-down), and swivel (left-right).

With 40 levels of tilt, you shouldn’t should crane your neck to learn the show when it’s at knee peak on a nightstand. The swivel may come in useful should you positioned the Pill in a central location, like on a kitchen island you’re utilizing from either side. Simply watch out to keep away from winding the dock’s energy twine across the base by chance.


Wasserstein says the brand new stand is Made for Google licensed, makes use of premium supplies, and might fold flat if it’s worthwhile to transfer it round or journey with it. When you opine the dock design is an eyesore, we’d be half-tempted to facet with you. It’s onerous to argue with the Google dock’s minimalist design if that’s what you’re after. Furthermore, the pill’s LCD display screen ought to have respectable viewing angles, anyway.

This new Pixel Pill accent ships in July 2023, and is obtainable for buy now, at a pre-sale value of $25, down from the unique record value of $40. Wasserstein’s product web page says it’ll begin delivery the stand in July, practically a month after the Pill’s in-store availability begins on June 20 this 12 months.
