The Soundbulb Concept Sets the Mood of a Room with Music and Light

 - Jan 18, 2013
Why delight just one sense when you can stimulate two? The Soundbulb concept by Hoang of San Francisco plays with the creation of ambiance by means of both auditory and visual effects.

Modeling his innovative product on the iconic form of the incandescent lightbulb, the designer combined cutting-edge technologies to rebuild it. The fixture's base is the mainboard PCB board which is capped by a speaker porting ring, a power strip, a sound unit and an LED cap. The OLED-driven lighting unit connects to the device with magnets, emitting preferred levels of illumination as well as music.

The Soundbulb is controlled by means of an iPhone app so that no new media, appliances or remotes need be brought into the room in order to select songs and manage volume.
