We have such a hard-on for LEDs that it seems like fate when this announcement comes from a company named Siemens. They have developed Ostar, an LED bulb that despite its 1 square millimeter size can put out 1,000 lumens of angelic light. Siemens explains the significance:
A 60-watt light bulb emits 730 lm, while a 50-watt halogen lamp has an output of approximately 900 lm
If only we had a price or release date.
