The light bulb goes Wi-Fi

The humble light-bulb has now entered the ‘smart’ technology zone. Australian inventor Phil Bosua has created a screw-in LED bulb that’s also a Wi-Fi enabled computer. His device could do for lighting what the smart-phone did for the mobile.

And he’s not alone in his efforts to reinvent and re-interpret artificial illumination. Welcome to the age of personalised, hyper-connected lighting.
