You've got the music, the air conditioning, and the chemicals. All you need now is Hue -- an RGB case light controller from NZXT that fills up a spare drive bay with dials to set the color, brightness and pulsation of a bundled two-meter, 24-LED light strip. Fake some ID, hand over $33 and reach f

If the expected price tag for Philips' latest LED light bulb is any indication, a brighter tomorrow won't come cheap. The \"75W replacement,\" known as the EnudraLED A21, apparently reduces energy by 80 percent, lasts 25 times longer than its conventional counterpart, and is expected to cost betwee

We've been charting the progression of in-home lighting, CFLs replacing incandescents but themselves slowly walking the path obsolescence as LED bulbs get cheaper and more common.

Those looking to take advantage of some of the benefits of LED lighting while also adding a bit of eye-catching decor to their living room may do well to try to get their hands on designer Nick Foley's so-called \"Pear Light,\" which appears to be as versatile as it is unnerving.

We had a sneaking suspicion that there was an ulterior motive behind Raleigh getting lit up as the \"world's first LED city,\" and aside from savings tons of dough on energy bills over the next decade or so, it seems to make motorists feel a good bit safer, too. According to a before and after survey

While it's no secret that LEDs light up the night in a more efficient (albeit expensive) manner, few locales have given the idea of lighting up the town en masse with LEDs any serious consideration. In a feat that would surely oust Brussles' Dexia Tower in terms of magnitude, city officials in Ralei
