This Funky New LED Is Almost Completely Flat to Keep Cool

Come January, the reign of incandescent bulbs comes to an end as the US collectively moves towards a greener, LED-lit future. The new 60 watt-equivalent SlimStyle LED bulb from Philips can light up a room without heating it, too.

The fully dimmable bulb fits standard A19 sockets and glows soft white (2700K) while consuming, per Philips' estimates, about $US1.26 per year in electricity. Plus, the bulb's flat design is quite unique — providing not only illumination but also requiring, according to a Philips press release, a far smaller heatsink than other LEDs. The bulbs will hit Home Depots on January 2nd.
