Fancy a £49 smart lightbulb that you control with your mobile?
We've all been there. Staring directly at a lightblub and cursing that the switch for it is arrogantly on the wall, out of arm's reach. Mercifully, someone has come up with a smartbulb which you can control with your phone.
You lazy, lazy bastard.
These bulbs will cost £179 for a starter pack, and that'll include broadband connection equipment and three bulbs that will screw into existing sockets while using 20%% of the energy of stupidbulbs. You'll be able to turn smartbulbs on and off with your phone, as well as adjusting the brightness from anywhere in the world!
Philips claims that the new 50W LED bulbs will give property owners the chance to deter burglars with this technology and they'll be available exclusively from Apple Stores.
Philips add that users can "tune shades of white light or create any colour" and that settings can be saved so that users can recreate "scenes" called 'LightRecipes' which will help you "relax, read, concentrate or energise".
Oddly, reading that has had precisely the opposite effect.
