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

So LEDs are bright enough to light our houses and last 10 times longer than even halogen technology. We're ready to upgrade.

If only we had a price or release date.
