SoundBulb: A Light Bulb and a Speaker All-in-One

After being blown away by the Concert Breeze ceiling fan at CES, we are all about cramming speakers where there were no speakers before. The SoundBulb concept applies that philosophy to the common light bulb.

Thanks to Bluetooth, audio would be transmitted wirelessly from your computer or mobile phone to the speaker system contained within each LED bulb. Because LEDs don't produce a lot of heat, I would assume that this idea is actually plausible. The only downside is that the concept, in its current form, calls for a manual volume adjustment by turning the top of the bulb. Obviously, it would be ideal if a network of several of these bulbs could be controlled with a single remote. Otherwise, this is a brilliant idea that I can only hope becomes reality sometime in the near future. [Yanko]
