Why go green with your lightbulbs when you can go orange, yellow, red, or blue? Philips Hue ($200) is a new series of LED-based lighting solutions that screw right in to normal light sockets. Plug a little box into your router, and you can control the color and intensity of one light bulb or all of them right from your iPhone, and thanks to the LED tech, they draw a max of 8.5W while shining as brightly as a standard 50W bulb, saving you money. Three lights and the wireless box are included in the starter pack; it's available exclusively through Apple. [Scouted by Brian]
For something we use so often, the light bulb hasn't changed much over the years. The LIFX ($70) is out to change all that. By packing Wi-Fi into a standard-sized bulb, it lets you control your lights using nothing but your phone. It's also based on LED technology, which allows you to change the color of the light on a whim, and ensures a lifespan of up to 25 years — all you need to do is replace your existing bulbs and enjoy.
