The Spark Socket is a handy device for light bulbs that allow them to be controlled wirelessly by smartphones. While individuals become much more tech-savvy, it is interesting to note the lack of advancements in the home. That is because such technology is often too expensive to even consider. Not everyone can be a real life Tony Stark. That said, with the advent of networked gadgets, cheaper alternatives such as the Spark Socket are on the rise.

Designed by Minneapolis-based Scot Herbst, the Spark Socket is a Wi-Fi adapter that fits in any existing light socket. Completely with a color-coded system when in place, the Spark Socket informs people of its current status. Aside from switching on and off the light, if paired with a dimmable bulb, the Spark Socket could be programmed to act as an alarm as well.
