"If you thought mousetraps were tough, try building a better lightbulb. Just in time for Earth Day, a team of American inventors have created a bizarre-looking new bulb that turns illumination on its ear, using light-emitting diodes (LEDs) clustered within a conventionally shaped bulb for illumination rather than filaments or fluorescent tubes. It will never end up in a landfill. It will not poison anybody. It may be the light of the future, hopes Switch Lighting CFO Brett Sharenow. "You'll be saving energy, you'll be saving the environment, and you'll be saving money," he told FoxNews.com."

One reason why neons or cathodes never replaced light bulbs is because they are kind of a blurry light options. Incandesent light makes a very sharp shadow, whereas neons and cathodes make a blurry shadow. LEDs a re better, but not quite like incandesent light bulbs. So, unless they make them very sharp and bright, noone will actually adopt them. That's at least what I think. Now everyone have a happy easter :)

Clever, see not all 'enviromentalist' stuff is boring or rubbish =P

Good that they designed this, just imagine it on a massive scale, if EVERYONE used these instead of regular stuff it would save alot.

"Maximum, Game".


..This Seems to be amazing... I hope.. Industry adopt it, or use it as fast as can be.. to replace all the light on the houses...
