We have already seen some new light bulbs that will be controlled by Google’s new Android @ Home software, and now there are also some other new light bulbs in the works that will have their own IP addresses.
NXP from the Netherlands are developing networked LED light bulbs, which will come with their own IP address, and can be connected via WiFi, although it will use the 802.15.4 wireless protocol, which means it doesn’t use the same bandwidth as your gadgets which is 802.11.
The WiFi light bulbs are expected to be available later this year, and they will be able to be controlled via a WiFi remote, and should cost about $50 for a pack of 5 bulbs.
Take a look and our article on Android vs iPhone to see which smartphone and mobile platform is best for you.
