Light Bulb Due to Be Extinct

Thought this was a kool read. We already use LED's in our bike lights so why not have them for the home or whatever? Check out the articles.

Here's a link to a good discuss about the article.

"includes 10 used-car dealers or auto repair shops, 11 liquor stores and bars--two of which advertise lingerie fashion shows and a third billed as a "gentlemen's club"--three cut-rate motels and one trailer park. The squat, brick municipal building is next to a currency exchange and a few steps from an adult video store. The bars open at 10 a.m. and close at 6:30 a.m."

Just want to share. I'm working on a company developing LED base light product. We have an MR16 base light bulb that's out on market roughly 3 years. You know that White Castle blue neon light, we have ten unit in Minnesota using are LED light engine with 3M fiber, more White Castle coming soon. When I got a chance I will post some picture.

I use a couple of them when camping, you can leave them on all night and not worry about the battery drain.

The light (in this case) is whiter and isn't as warm as a regular lightbulb but serves its purpose well.
