Light Rock

Streaming Music. Through a Lightbulb.

B954cfc2e881df3f62c2967369d4d000You’ve heard of Thomas Edison.

The guy who invented the lightbulb.

Actually, correction, the guy who invented the inferior version of the lightbulb.

You know, the one that only turns on. And off. And on. And off.

Not the one that turns on. And off. And on. And plays Barry Manilow.

Nope, that was these guys.

Introducing AudioBulb, a new surround-sound system that wirelessly streams music through... your lightbulbs, available now.

Yep, we’re talking about an LED lightbulb and a stereo speaker rolled into one little 60-watt, luminescent package. Think the wireless technology of a router meets the illuminating novelty of the Clapper.

Okay, so the system itself consists of two parts. First: the dock. Second: the bulb. Start by placing your iPhone into the dock. Then, and this may be the tricky part if you’re frequently used as the setup of jokes, screw in the lightbulb.

That’s it. You can now use your desk lamp and up to eight additional bulbs (yes, get these for your patio) like individually controlled wireless speakers.

Oh, and if you’re the kind of person who tends to play a lot of Al Green around the house, we recommend also picking up the remote.

It doubles as a dimmer.
