The Future of Lighting: LivingColors from Philips

We write often how LEDs will change the way we look at lighting; how we will build them into the fabric of our houses, and how they will change the way we use light. Here is one of the first transformational ideas that show where they might be going. The Philips LivingColors lamp has four LEDs (two red, one each blue and green) that can be mixed and adjusted with a hand-held wireless colour wheel. You can adjust spectrum, saturation and intensity. It draws 50 watts max and is projected to last ten years.

It's not yet cheap (£92.99 at Amazon) but one can see the possibilities of changing colour with mood, activities, whatever- your choice of sixteen million colours.
