What? How do you reinvent the light bulb you may ask yourself? LED’s, my good friend! I honestly don’t know why this hasn’t come around before, we have LED flashlights and LED headlights on our cars but we still stick with incandescent bulbs or CFL’s that are like super dangerous. Maybe people have tried LED light bulbs but they haven’t made any as cool and smart as these from LIFX.
So what’s cool about these? They are WiFi enabled, multi-color, energy efficient LED light bulb that you control with your iPhone or Android. Say what!? Yes, these light bulbs can be controlled by your smartphone. You can have any color per bulb or group bulbs together. You can dim them, have them strobe and even pulse different colors to your music.
These things are genius and you can get yours March of next year. This is a Kickstarter that has already passed it’s $100,000 goal by almost 5 times (484,000) at the time of this posting with 58 days left to go. Buying a single bulb will run you $69 or if you buy 4 or more you will get them for $49 each.
I haven’t even touched on all the things these bulbs can do or the uses for them. They are even coming out with an SDK so you hack these bulbs for other reasons. Just watch this video and go give them your money!
