In a world where almost anything and seemingly everything can be controlled with a smart phone, there are things we probably didn’t consider. Here is a new one: a light bulb.
Launched as a project on the funding platform KickStarter, LIFX is a Wi-Fi-enabled energy-efficient LED bulb that homeowners can control with a smart phone. It’s rated for brightness exceeding 900 lumens, or about equivalent to a 75-watt incandescent bulb.
“You want smart bulbs to be as bright as possible, because with full control via the app, brightness is your only limit,” says founder and CEO Phil Bosua. “With LIFX you’ll be able to choose from over 16 million colors, control every light from your smart phone, and do some cool tricks like visualizing music just by changing your light bulbs, and all without compromising on brightness.”
