LEDs Do More than Just Lighting Homes
The concept of a regular light bulb has changed since the introduction of LEDs. Today, these lights can be used as a centerpiece of a space that can be used to improve moods, health and even how we look and taste food. With the development of LED lamp technology, the lowly light bulb is doing more than turning on and off. A lamp can be the centerpiece of an environment meant to improve health, moods and even food. LEDs can create light in multiple colors, generate less heat and use a fraction of the energy of older types of bulbs. And LEDs can be controlled remotely from a PC or smartphone app, as programmable as a television. “There’s a tremendous potential for LED lighting to go beyond illumination,” said John Strainic, General Electric’s general manager for consumer lighting. “We’re asking people to think about lighting as more than just an impulse purchase.” More on the story at NY Times.
