We all know that LED bulbs are the future, what with their long life and power-sipping prowess. Now you can upgrade to LED and make your lighting smarter with the GE Link LED Light Bulb. Thanks to a microchip built into the bulb, they can communicate with your iPhone or iPad — via the Wink app — letting you turn them on or off or even dim them from anywhere you can find an Internet connection.
No, it's not some new Internet-based service that takes your photos, videos, and drunken napkin doodles and stores them online. Instead, Cloud is, well, a cloud — one that stays inside your house. Created by artist Richard Clarkson, this unusual work packs a series of color-changing lights, a powerful speaker system, and an Arduino inside its felted hypoallergenic fill and sponge body, letting you enjoy a "storm" every time you pass by, or anytime at all using the remote. But what's even better is the built-in Bluetooth, which means that when you're in the mood to jam, you can stream your music to it and enjoy great sound with light-based visualizations.
Add a touch of turn-of-the-century class to your space without needing turn-of-the-century technology with these Edison LED Light Bulbs. Thanks to warm color temps, each of the three bulbs — they're available in traditional round, teardrop, and G95 shapes — gives off all the atmosphere and ambiance of a real Edison-era bulb while using a smidgen of the power, making them a terrific blend of old and new.
