US Firm Astro Inc have invented an LED Light Bulb that also has an inbuilt speaker. Why do this? In their words: "Rock out to your favorite playlist in the kitchen while you cook. Wake up with brighter lighting and a podcast in your bedroom. We’ve thought of everything you need to upgrade the light and sound in any room."
The Twist LED Globe allows you to stream your music via Airplay, can have its colour changed based on the time of day and is a hubless and installation free device. Quite an interesting concept and demonstrates just how revolutionary LED lighting will continue to be as designers rethink the way houses functionally operate.
The product is expected to be available in early 2016 but can be preordered now.
