A South Korean company has designed “Smart Bulb”, an LED bulb with WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity. Long lasting, and energy saving are not the only qualities this bulb has. Smart Bulb can link with an Android or iOS device to remotely control brightness, or blinks when users receive a phone call.
Kevin Taylor, a product specialist for Action on Hearing Loss says this product will be especially beneficial for 1 in 6 of us who have some degree of hearing loss.
If this light bulb extended its features to responding to text messages or emails alerts, or even the doorbell it has potential to revolutionise the daily lives of people who are deaf/ hard of hearing.
The Smart Bulb will be released in Korea shortly for 35,000 won (£19) each. Affordably priced!
