ILumi is a simple LED-based bulb that can be screwed into any common socket. It is available in small, large, white and full-spectrum models, which are supposedly super energy-efficient, will last 20 years, and can be controlled with a simple mobile application. You can schedule the light, alter its brightness of hue, motion-activate it, and more. Founders Corey Egan and Swapnil Bora are waiting to finalise the designs and manufacture the bulbs, which have already won numerous awards this year.
