The Smart Lightbulb

By David Ponce

Now this is really good. It’s a lightbulb (making use of technology developped by Fujitsu) that alerts you via SMS when it burns out. A signal is engraved in a contact part of the bulb. When it dies, it sends you a message. How? This is the great part.

It shoots an SMS via the electric wires of your home, to the Internet, then to your phone, telling you to “Buy a new lightbulb on the way home”.

No clue on price though. Story VIA Textually.
