Google Invested $3 Million in Cree LED Lightbulbs

Google's investing in bright ideas.
Dean Kamen, the man best known for Segway, was at TEDMED 2010 talking about all sorts of cool things.
The one that's closest to being here today is a new LED lightbulb that features lighting technology created by Cree, and produces 450 lumens from a power draw of just 7 watts. It'll retail for $25 and be sold door-to-door through Kamen's FIRST youth program.
Several hundred thousand of these bulbs are already produced, thanks to Google's support of a $3 million investment. It's not quite the Google Lightbulb, but now we know the search giant wants to help you find your stuff with better lighting.

  7. jinx: 25 bucks for a lightbulb that uses next to no electricity and will last you years. LED bulbs practically last for fucking ever

  8. only 450 lumens? that's not very bright. a normal 60W incandescent puts out about 800 lumens and a 100w incandescent puts out about 1500 lumens.

    hopefully this is the road to bright led bulbs, though

  9. $25 for a lightbulb seems expenses but I guess they will last and save power.
