The inventors secured about a million pounds in funding to manufacture a 42 pounds light bulb that lets you have a disco in your kitchen.
The LIFX light bulb will offer users the power to swiftly dim the lights for a romantic evening or switch on the disco strobe for an unplanned rave.
Company founder Phil Bosua said that “Traditional bulbs also use heaps of power and those energy efficient fluoro bulbs have that cold white light that we all hate.”
He added that “So I started thinking with all the technology we’ve got today, surely there must be a better way. I mean it’s not like we get up to change the TV anymore, so why do we still do that with our lights? Six months and more than a dozen prototypes later, we’ve managed to create the world’s smartest energy efficient light bulb.”
The smartest bulb will screw into normal light fittings and function like a normal light bulb if you lose your phone.
