A Pill Sized Light That’s More Effecient Than An LED and Hot As The Sun
This tiny little pill sized light bulb from the folks at Luxim, emits ‘sun quality light’ (should read spectrum) and at the core of the bulb radiates the same heat level, 6,000 Calvin. That’s 140 lumens per watt – 15 lumens per watt for a regular light bulb and 70 for an LED – and converts most of its energy into actual light, unlike most lights which convert it into heat. How does it accomplish this feat? $40 million in VC funding of course.
