Flyte Levitating LED Lightbulb Is Awesome


What do you get when you combine the power of electromagnetic induction, and uh, magnets? You get the Flyte LED Lightbulb, of course. Much like the wireless smartphone chargers you see today, this LED bulb is powered from a distance through the magic of electromagnetic induction. But the added flair in this product is that the entire bulb and housing levitate above their base, slowly rotating. The base is plugged into an outlet and some electromagnets keep the bulb in place, while powering the LED. 5V of power are sent through the air, which is enough to generate a modest 60 Lumens. At $249 it’s on the very pricey side, but think of the amazed looks on your guests’ faces and maybe you’ll think it’s worth it.

Buster Bulbs Look Old School, Are Brand New


There’s something special about old timey stuff, and the old Edison lightbulbs with the huge filaments harken back to simpler, less fast-paced times. Wanting to recreate some of that aura, the Buster Bulbs are shaped somewhat like their century old predecessors, but feature very modern technology. Featuring LEDs, they’re being called “the world’s first designer lightbulbs”, and we have to say we quite like their appearance. Beauty is, of course, in the eye of the beholder, but if you agree with us and fancy to get yourselves one, it’s £40 per. They come in warm gold, smoked grey & bright crystal colors.

Smartphone Connected LED Bulb Also Streams Audio


LED lightbulbs that can be controlled with your smartphone are nothing new. But the AirBULB adds one extra feature that could make a big difference when comparing similar products: it streams audio from your connected smartphone through its integrated speakers. This means you can have audio throughout your home without having to pass any cables anywhere. Granted you’re only getting a 3W output, but that should be sufficient for some background music.

The LED bulb’s colour can be adjusted through the app, and it can be set to flash when you get a call or notifications. An $89 pledge will get you yours, with shipping expected around May if the campaign reaches its funding goals.

LIFX LED Lightbulb’s Kickstarter Success Shows There’s Some Heavy Demand

A while ago we wrote about The Bluetooth Light Bulb. It was a nice product but its availability was not known. Now we’re hearing about the LIFX LED Bulb and we’re starting to hope we can actually get our hands on something real. Unlike the other one, the LIFX works with WiFi to communicate with its application. One bulb connects to the router, and then creates a mesh network with every other one you have installed in your home. Once online, you can adjust each bulb’s brightness and color, as well as program it with a timer. Other features include the ability to dim the light when you go to bed, and to automatically match the colour to the music you’re listening to (mood lighting).

It’s $65 right now as a pledge on Kickstarter, with delivery slated for March 2013. More importantly, the project is not only fully funded, but it’s raised $700,000+ when its goal was $100,000, proving that the market is ripe to bring a bit of innovation to an invention that’s barely changed in the last 100 years.
