Klipsch LightSpeaker brings sound and light together

13 05 2010

I saw this product at CES Unveiled, and I couldn’t help but wonder why someone hadn’t thought of mixing a light and a speaker together before.

Klipsch’s LightSpeaker, developed by Kadence Designs LLC, comes with a dimmable LED bulb and full-range speaker, which enables it to fit into five and six inch recessed light fixtures with a standard Edison socket. Accessories will allow the LightSpeaker to accommodate floor lamps, table lamps, as well as hanging light fixtures.

The LightSpeaker uses a 20 watt high-performance, low distortion digital amplifier for energy-efficient sound. The audio is delivered wirelessly with a standalone 2.4 GHz transmitter. So your sound can be taken from a laptop, CD Player, or iPod. The LightSpeaker can accommodate up to eight LightSpeakers, and it can equalize stereo sound in many rooms. Yes, with the simple application of light, all sound will be transferred across the house.

The LED bulb is rated for 40,000 hours, which enables it to last for 15 years. It can supposedly reduce daily lighting expenses by 80 percent, because it uses 10 watts to produce light that are bright enough to replace up to a 65 watt blub.

The LightSpeaker is slated to be released in March as a bundled package. A set consists of two LightSpeakers, transmitter, radio frequency remote, mini-jack to RCA plug cable, lenses and trim, and will sell for $599. A single one will sell for about $249.

A light between your credit cards

6 02 2009

With about the size of a normal sized credit card, this small flip up lightbulb is convenient to have in your wallet.

Whenever you need a small light to search for your keys, simply grab this cut-out lightbulb and flip it up. It’ll immediately light up.

What’s the point of this when we have lights in our cellphones? I guess it’s just a cool thing to have.





USB Powered Clip-on Computer Light

Everyone but me saw this one coming. I like to work on the porch in nice weather and eventually it gets dark. This light saves the day (ok, night). It plugs into a USB port, and clips onto the laptop. It provides various degrees of light thanks to a dimmer switch. I love this little thing.
This should be considered a must-have in all laptop bags. You can get your own flylight 2.0 USB light at shoplet.





Plasma Ball

Creates an amazing light show – from any angle!

A little bit of science, a little bit of art, and a whole lot of cool! This Nebula Plasma Ball is simply the ultimate interactive light show. Blending specially formulated inert gases, it creates a dramatic display of light inside a hand-blown glass sphere!

Fascinating to watch, this light is even more fun to play with! Just place your fingers on the glass surface and watch as colored bolts of glowing light follow your every move. You can actually “feel” the energy as the light gently tickles your fingertips!

Featuring a super-large 8″ glass sphere, the Nebula Plasma Ball can be viewed from any angle, and comes complete with its own AC power adapter and unique designer base that compliments any room. AC powered adapter included.

This is really NOT a toy. There is a protective coating on the glass. If you do drop it, and the glass breaks, the Plasma Ball is designed to stay in generally the same ball shape, without flying glass.

Simply the BEST Plasma Ball on the market today!

My mother got me one of these back in the 1980’s and I still love it. Get yours at Scientifics.
