NanoLight: Folded, Omnidirectional LED Light Bulb That Produces 100W Of Light From 12W Of Power.

NanoLight 100 watt equivalent LED light bulbThe NanoLight LED looks like a cyborg-Edison style light bulb and kind of works like one by producing 100 watts of light from 12 watts of power. Developed by three friends who met at the University of TorontoGimmy Chu, Tom Rodinger and Christian Yan – the folded NanoLight LED hits the 100 watt (1600 lumens) threshold and still has an estimated lifespan of 30,000 hours by more efficiently dissipating the heat LED’s produce at higher wattages. The NanoLight 100 W equivalent LED light bulb is expected to sell for around $50. NanoLight is currently looking for funding on Kickstarter.

Even though I wouldn’t be a customer for this brighter model, it’s great to see that a company is working toward a 100 W equivalent LED. [Gizmag]
