Thank You Rudy E. of Maine For Ordering Edison-Style LED Light Bulbs From Jubbling.

Edison Style LED Light Bulbs - 35 Watt Equivalent.A big thank you to Rudy E. of Maine for ordering Edison-style LED light bulbs from our Jubbling store.

In addition to making the switch to LED lighting, Rudy is also Jubbling by:

  • Spending the last 30 years trying to reduce the amount of energy he uses.
  • Living off-the-grid using wind & solar for most of the 1990’s.
  • Now living in a home that has a grid-tied PV system that supplies about 95% of the energy.
  • Drives a Chevy Volt plug-in.

LightHawk | Volunteer Pilots Donating Flights to Elevate ConservationAnother way Rudy is Jubbling is by leading LightHawk.org – an organization that pairs conservationists, who need a bird’s eye-view, with pilots willing to donate flight time. From LightHawk.org:

“LightHawk provides flight as a tool to protect land, water and wildlife in the U.S., Mexico, Central America and parts of Canada.”

Thanks again Rudy; we appreciate your order and your Jubbling.

The GreenWave Reality Connected Lighting Solution: DIY LED Lighting You Can Control With Your Mobile Phone. Necessary?

GreenWave Reality LED Lighting SolutionWireless smart bulbs or are they Wi-Fi lights? The GreenWave Reality Connected Lighting Solution, from GreenWave and NXP Semiconductor, includes a router, remote and 4-35 watt equivalent LED light bulbs. It’s a simple DIY lighting solution that allows users to remotely control their WiFi’d LED light bulbs. Here’s how you install the system:

    1. Screw in the GreenWave LED smart light bulb.
    2. Plugin the router.
    3. Setup each LED through an iOS or Android app.

There’s a lot of positive buzz about the GreenWave Reality Connected Lighting Solution and how great it is to be able to remotely control your homes’ lighting and I don’t get it. GreenWave Reality Connected Lighting Solution Yes, migrating your lighting to more energy efficient LEDs is good and the tech behind this product is amazing but I still don’t get why we need the router and remote/app to control our lights. Haven’t we all figured out the light switch?

Products like this turn lighting and home efficiency into an unnecessary gadget and my guess is that with the Greenwave Reality solution installed, spooking your spouse/kids at home by remotely controlling the lights will get more play than genuine concern about leaving the lights on.

So here is our suggestion: use the $200 you might have spent on the GreenWave Reality Connected Lighting Solution to buy and install 10 – 12 equivalent LED light bulbs. You’ve mastered the light switch and you deserve to save more electricity. [GigaOM, Gizmodo, Greentech Media, Inhabitat….]

Radast Design’s LightDrive LED Lamp: A Bad-Ass Upside Down LED Lamp That My Broke-Ass Can’t Afford.

Radast Design LightDrive LED table lampRadast Design definitely challenges the norm with their upside-down LightDrive LED table lamp. From their website:

“This contemporary bulb-less design uses specially engineered optics to channel light from the high‐power LEDs in the base to the top of the lamp where it is softly diffused. Heat is carefully managed via a system of machined aircraft grade aluminum components resulting in a lamp exterior that is neutral to the touch and with no exposed hotspots.

The LightDrive LED table lamp is expected to last for 15 years and comes with a 5-year warranty. Radast Design’s LightDrive LED table lamp is now looking for funding on Kickstarter to help cover the added cost of ordering components in quantity, getting certified (UL Listing etc.), package design and to cover tooling costs.

Retailing at $799, the LightDrive LED table lamp is definitely in the “neat but hard to justify” price range. It’s not for everyone. But if it delivers as promised for those willing to spend $799, it’ll hopefully work like a gateway LED and motivate satisfied LightDrive customers to make the switch to LED lighting throughout their home.

Hay-Sous! Just Sell Me An LED Light Bulb Without Smartphone Control And That Other Unnecessary Crap.

Insteon Networked Dimmable LED Light BulbIt’s like cracking nuts with a sledgehammer. I’m so tired of hearing about overly complicated green products that make us unnecessarily consume more in order to consume less. Crave posted an article, Control this LED bulb with a smartphone, about the $29.99 Insteon networked and dimmable LED light bulb. The Insteon LED light bulb can be dimmed and turned on/off by a remote control or with the addition of a $99.99 Insteon SmartLinc Hub, controlled via a iOS or Android mobile device.

Getting an LED light bulb: good. Super-sizing your Insteon LED with the SmartLinc Hub just so you can monkey-around with it with your smartphone: dum. [Crave]

Upside Down Anglepoise Lamp Reveals LED Light?

Angled Lamp by Louis Rensch.The Anglepoise lamp designed by George Cawardine in 1932 is the prototypical desk lamp. You might not recognize the name but the style is a standard in any office and can also be found in the opening sequence of every Pixar movie.

Now, German design student Louis Rensch is flipping the Anglepoise on its normal bulb-holding head while allowing the base to provide lighting with flat, low-power consuming LEDs. Whether or not Mr. Rensch’s design “Angled” takes hold, it’s still original and makes a statement about the future of lighting. [core77]
