We have already witnessed some unique combinations of light and sound in the form of the SoundBulb and the Bulb-Sound-Speaker a few months back. However, it’s time for yet another blend of sound and bulb that offers a functional (rather musical) solution to the problem of an overloaded desk covered with papers, a telephone, a desk lamp, a PC or laptop, a keyboard, a mouse and a web of wires. Coming from the house of Armada, a design studio from Slovenia, the new Sound Bulb is essentially a speaker shaped like a traditional light bulb, with a standard thread that the users can employ in any lampshade, allowing a quick shift from a work environment to an entertainment mode. All you have to do is place the speaker in a lamp and turn on the lamp to connect the receiver (embedded in the Sound Bulb) to a transmitter plugged in any musical player or PMP, including an iPod, PC, mobile phone and so on. Combining the functions of a lamp and a speaker, the sound bulb also neatly encloses an LED diode, a transformer, a speaker and a wireless receiver inside the translucent frosted plastic shell. The Sound Bulb comes in two standards: E26 for the US market and E27 for the European market.
