AwoX, a provider of multimedia interconnection technologies for the home, released an LED light bulb that doubles as a Bluetooth speaker.
The StriimLIGHT twists into any light socket to provide light and sound that you can control using the AwoX smart control app on your smartphone, laptop or desktop computer.
The app allows the user to brighten or dim the light or change its colour, add music, apply an alarm timer to its functions and control the speaker’s volume.
AwoX CEO Alain Molinie said: “Best of all, StriimLight’s unobtrusive design makes it easy to add music to rooms where space is scarce, such as bathrooms and kitchens.”
The light bulb delivers 110 to 240 volts of LED illumination and pumps out the sound via a 10-watt speaker.
There is also a Wi-Fi version, which operates in the same way as the Bluetooth version, while there’s a mini version for smaller sockets.
The cost of each light bulb is $99 and is currently available in the US.
