LIFX Light BulbImagine a light bulb that is energy efficient, lasts up to 25 years, offers multiple colors and can be controlled with your smartphone. Well, that type of futuristic technology is here, as start-up company LIFX is starting to produce the next generation of light bulb.

Here are some of the benefits of the LIFX light bulb:

  • Each LIFX light bulb can be controlled by your smartphone, allowing an individual to turn on lights in an entire room or just one light.

  • Change the mood of the room by changing the color to blue, green, red, etc.
  • Get email or social network notifications by having your lights flash, being synced with your smartphone applications
