SoundBulb concept

Designers Hoang Nguyen, Poom Puttorngul and Anh Nguyen have presented a wireless lightbulb speaker concept called the SoundBulb. The re-designed bulb consists of multiple LED units and a special lens, and relies on Bluetooth and Wi-Fi receivers to stream music. To adjust volume, owners are asked to turn the bottom of a bulb. A potential problem with the SoundBulb is said to be ensuring heat does not damage the speakers; in case of damage, though, all parts of the SoundBulb are replaceable.

Both the LEDs and speakers are powered by a light socket, and the speakers would theoretically work with any Bluetooth- or Wi-Fi-enabled device. Confirmation on if or when the SoundBulb might be manufactured has yet to be given.
