On my smartphones and laptops I've really come to like the dynamic color temperature feature that causes the display to use a warmer color temperature at night, based on the sunset and sunrise times of the current day at your location. I was wondering if something similar could be implemented for the White lighting mode on the Sisyphus tables. I've found that I like the coolest setting during the day and prefer the warmer setting at night. Sisyphus clearly already knows the current time at my location even though I never had to specify a time zone -- I'm guessing IP-based geolocation? -- so querying sunset and sunrise times would seem to be only one small additional step.

Then it would just be a matter of implementing a color temperature change "ramp" over a period of time around sunset and sunrise. Perhaps the coolest and warmest temperatures and the transition period could be user-configurable, but even this were implemented such that the table switched between the coolest and warmest temp over a period of a few seconds at sunset and sunrise when White lighting was selected and Night Shift was enabled, that would be handy.

This is an interesting suggestion. I will pass it along to our dev team and see what they say in terms of difficulty (or not) to implement.

Interesting idea. My first RGBW LED project did that -- aquarium lights. They use a RTC to know what time of day it is (which the table also knows).
