AirBulb, An App-Controlled Lightbulb And Speaker


You know what’s better than an app-controlled, color-changing lightbulb? An app-controlled, color-changing lightbulb with a built-in speaker. And that’s just what you get if you pitch in for the AirBulb’s Kickstarter campaign.

The idea is really fantastic. I mean, we want a speaker in every room, and of course we want a lightbulb in every room. What we don’t want is to be charging batteries the whole time, or to be dicking around with AirPlay, which sound great – but only when it works.

The AirBulb can switch between warm and cool white LED light at the touch of an app, and can stream your music through its 3-watt amp. And of course your can make the lights flash to create your own lame school-disco style setup.

Even the price is good – just $69 (less for early bird backers). This is too much for a light bulb, but fine for a Bluetooth speaker, and here you get both.

And that’s it. Pitch in and wait until December to see if they ever actually get made.
