The Ultimate Geeky Lightbulb?

Over on Kickstarter at the moment there’s a very cool project which is for a new type of light bulb. To be honest it’s more than just a “bulb”, it’s more like an entire lighting system that comes in the shape / form of a light bulb.

It’s got wifi, IPv6, it’s eco-friendly .. it’s got all sorts of other cool stuff under the hood ..

Here’s their promo video explaining what it’s all about:

From the project description:

LIFX is the smartest light bulb you’ve ever experienced. It’s a wifi-enabled, energy efficient, multi-colored bulb that you control with your iPhone or Android. LIFX gives you unprecedented control of your lights, reduces your energy costs, lasts up to 25 years and delivers an amazing range of experiences we think you’ll love.

What self-respecting geek wouldn’t want a few of them in their house? I know I want at least half a dozen!

Full details, photos and more over on their Kickstarter page

    I would love to back this but my girlfriends birthday means I have no cash for it. But I’m dubious on the “25 year” claim. All of these eco-bulbs are supposed to last that long, but in reality they only ever last 5 years.

    Still, good idea and I’ll be buying it! (As long as they release an Android app for it!)
