These Are the Android @ Home Light Bulbs You'll Be Able to Switch On With Your Android Device

Part of me wishes Google had gone with the Plumen light bulbs instead of Lighting Science Group's bulb, but I guess they had their reasons. The 60-watt bulbs can be dimmed or brightened with a touch of an Android device.

It's part of Google's Android @ Home initiative, which developers will be able to use to create home automation apps. Not only will we be able to alter lightbulb brightness (or even turn them on/off) using an Android device, but there'll be a bunch of other cool tricks coming out once developers get the open source keys.

On sale at the end of the year, Lighting Science Group's bulbs won't cost much more than the usual LED lights set you back. [GigaOm via Inhabitat]
