There is a possible new multi-functional device on the tech block called the SoundBulb. It is a lightbulb that has an 8 ohm speaker inside. These Soundbulbs will also have a Bluetooth receiver that allows for wireless audio streaming from a computer or cellular phone. There is an on/off switch on the outside. Inside the SoundBulb is an LED light bulb, and the outer edge operates as a volume control.
One hopes you wouldn’t burn yourself on the hot lightbulb when you are turning your music up or down- ouch! These devices run off of whatever is powering the bulb whether it is a battery or AC cord. Unfortunately there is no word on whether we’ll actually be seeing these devices hit our retail shelves any time soon.
