LIFX smart bulbs use LEDs which produce equivalent light to a 60w incandescent light bulb and are rated to 40,000 hour/up to 25 year standards. Three types of bulbs are available: Bayonet cap, Edison Screw, and Downlight.

The bulb uses a master/slave concept to connect to your home router via 802.11n and then onto all the other LIFX smartbulbs via IPV6 802.15.4 mesh network. Each LIFX can connect to all country electricity systems from 110V to 260V.

The LIFX smart bulbs are seeking funding on Kickstater. In just a couple days they have nearly quadrupled their goal of $100,000. To get one of the first bulbs you can pledge $69 for one bulb, $119 for two bulbs, or $196 for four bulbs.

I absolutely DESPISE reading an article about a new, awesome product and then see the word "Kickstarter" at the end. ADD THAT TO THE TITLE! If it's in Kickstarter, it might as well be a concept video because as of now, it cannot be purchased and has NO release date.

Their goal was to make $100,00 and they made $500,000 . So I'm pretty sure you would soon see it in stores

Great concept. Just need it to get into the "reasonably priced" market.

Really slick project. I will consider sponsoring. For retail, they can expect to need to get that price point down to about half of what they have it set to. Really. I doubt they can expect $69 each for them in retail. Although this eliminates some of the other automation stuff like X10, which is kinda cool.
