LED's hit the Home Market

Fast Company called the compact flourescent "the light bulb that can change the world"- Perhaps they should have waited a few weeks. Now LED's are getting really interesting, as the fixtures go mainstream and affordable, like this 90 dollar desk lamp from Sylvania. Other models start at $ 46. The LightingBrilliance line of fixtures is interesting for another reason- according to marketing director Laura Fuller, "We make light bulbs, not fixtures, but with LED's we had to build the fixture around the light." The fixture will burn for 20,000 hours or fifteen years with normal use. ::Osram Sylvania via ::Globe and Mail
