Android Controlled Lightbulb

Google has just unveiled their Android-Controlled lightbulb that uses the company’s new open-source wireless networking protocol from any Android device. "The search giant worked with Lighting Science Group to develop the omnidirectional 60-watt equivalent bulb, which can be dimmed or brightened on the fly by an Android-equipped smart phone, tablet, or laptop. The smart bulb is the perfect test bed for Google’s new protocol, which stands to open the door to a new wave of energy-efficient home systems."

"Artificial lighting accounts for about 11% of your home’s energy use, so smarter lighting systems are a surefire way to reduce the carbon footprint of our built environment – which accounts for a remarkable 38% of CO2 emissions in the US."
