05/08/2012, One major setback with LED lighting is that if you want a larger output of wattage, you will also have to deal with a larger chip cooling system. Now however, GE has revealed its new line of Energy Smart LED bulbs which have an innovative design for more efficient cooling. Reportedly, it can put out a 100W of power at only a quarter of the energy requirements needed from a […]
03/29/2012, When it comes to technology and fashion, sometimes the overlapping of categories end up with disastrous consequences, but I am rather pleased to say that with the advent of better and better technologies, you know for sure that things are starting to look up. Case in point, the Animated LED necklace from Silvia Yang is definitely something worth looking into – or rather, wear around your neck. It does not […]
03/23/2012, Chandeliers always lend that air of opulence and grandeur, and is befitting of fine hotels as well as other classical buildings, but what happens when 21st century design meets with ancient, timeless grace? Troika, a design firm, will tell you – and show you, with their Thixotropes LED chandelier. We do know that LED lighting is always far more power efficient than what standard bulbs offer, not to mention being […]
03/19/2012, NEC Lighting has taken one of Thomas Edison’s most famous inventions – the light bulb, and injected it with wireless speaker capability. Of course, we are talking about this light bulb being power efficient in order to keep up with the times, hence it comes in the form of an LED ceiling light, where you are able to control it with your smartphone using an Android app. Once a Bluetooth […]
02/27/2012, Jogging late at night or in the wee hours of the morning before dawn might be something a few of you enjoy, as you are all alone in the cool weather without having to share the road with irate drivers as well as avoiding cyclists who are pedaling in a fury, but the downside would be a lower visibility level that might increase the risk of an accident. Wearing a […]
02/08/2012, As if LED lights weren’t efficient enough, it looks like we might be introduced to a new generation of LED lights in the future – provided Soraa’s latest technology catches on. The company will be launching its first product – the MR 16 bulb. It is meant to replace the 50-watt halogen and uses 12.5 watts while offering better beam and light quality. Soraa’s LEDs are made with an active […]
02/08/2012, There are some of us who are colorblind, and in this case, we might not be able to tell whether a traffic light is red, amber or green – but after a while, we get used to the sequence of the traffic lights, and follow them accordingly. Professor Taro Ochiai of Japan’s Kyushu Sangyo University might be on to something here, where his imagination resulted in a redesigned LED traffic […]
02/01/2012, There are some of us who go to places of worship and are enlightened, so to speak, by the message we heard, or songs that we sung. Well, if you want to be enlightened in a different manner, then make sure you head down to the Luminarie Cagna cathedral that was paraded at Belgium’s Festival of Lights. With more than 55,000 colored LEDs lighting up the structure, the Luminarie Cagna, […]
01/09/2012, [CES 2012] Sony has shows its Crystal LED display prototype to the world for the first time. The 55-inch display has a native 1080p resolution, but what makes it so extraordinary is that it uses a combined 6 million of tiny individual LED lights. Why 6 million? A 1080p display has about 2M pixels (2,073,600 to be exact), and each pixel is composed of three sub-pixels (Red, Green and Blue). […]
12/20/2011, Breathing comes naturally to most, if not all, of us. In fact we do it without even having to think about it, so why on earth would we want to “glam” it up? Well, we’re not sure what the motivation behind this draft-sensing nose light was for its creator Noda Akira, but we’re guessing he was just showing off its functionality albeit in a rather novel fashion.
11/21/2011, Star Wars fans, interested in donning a t-shirt with a image of the Death Star on it? Now before you think that this is your run of the mill t-shirt with a Death Star image on it, you would be wrong. Instead this Death Star t-shirt by Think Geek does more than keep you warm and keep you clothed.
10/26/2011, Getting about on a bicycle can be one of the more liberating modes of transport, although some might say that it can get rather dangerous as well. After all, during the evenings or at night, a car or other vehicle might just knock you down simply because they failed to see your presence. LED by LITE might help you out here though, where four strips of silicone-encased LED bulbs will […]
10/17/2011, If you’re in the market for a brand new 3D monitor, ViewSonic might have just what you’re looking for in the form of the V3D231 LED monitor. The 23” monitor will sport a native display resolution of 1920×1080 Full HD, with a 20,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio along with a mere 2ms video response time, which looks like it should be up for the task of gaming, photo editing and watching […]
10/10/2011, You know how clever the world of design has become, where our standard issue refrigerators these days come with highly reflective surfaces that helps you do away with mirrors in the kitchen? Want to see whether that tie of yours is out of place? Simple, just walk up to the refrigerator and make an adjustment. Samsung plays with this idea further by assigning their engineers to work with advanced LED […]
