The humble and sometimes neglected light bulb just got dressed up with the popular bluetooth technology. Now, you don’t have to worry about forgetting to turn the lights off or maybe even reaching out for that light switch from your bed after you have finished reading your favorite book. With just a little imagination, you can fill your house with a state-of-the art lighting technology that is not only cost and energy saving but is also fun!
The Bluetooth Bulb may seem like your ordinary light bulb. Performance-wise, it’s built with the Bluetooth 4.0 technology allowing anyone to remotely manipulate the lighting by pairing it with a mobile device or tablet in a range as far as 164 feet.
Owners can switch on the light, switch it back off, dim it, set a timer, and even play with various lighting hues with a custom-made RGB bulb. Every part of the bulb is replaceable which means that you don’t have to worry about unplanned costs and wasting money. Moreover, there’s no need to set up anything as the whole thing does not depend on a home automation system.
Since it uses only Bluetooth 4.0, there are only a few devices that can work with it. For the meantime, the technology works with a MacBook Air, Mac Mini, Droid RAZR, Samsung Galaxy SIII, iPad 3, and iPhone 4S. Availability of the amazing Bluetooth bulb is targeted to be within the next two months via the Bluetooth Bulb’s website.
