Wi-Fi LED lightbulbs are cool — I’m currently enamoured with a pair of LIFX bulbs I’m testing for an upcoming smart home post, along with those from competitor Philips. But you know what might be even cooler? Lightbulbs that double as wireless multi-room and music-reacting speakers. That’s the premise of Whome Bulb from London/Shanghai-based WaveBomb, which is currently pitching its wares on Kickstarter. Now, of course, sound quality might be the kicker here, but speaker technology — to my ears, anyway — has come a long way in recent years. It’s not uncommon to have very decent sound emanating from something quite small. Specifically, the Whome Bulb claims an 80Hz~20KHz sound range, including decent bass, and has been engineered to solve the overheating problem that comes with doubling up as a bulb and being relatively small.
