Internet-connected smart lights are more affordable than ever and easy to use via remote controls or smartphone apps.Options range from simple bulbs that slot into regular fixtures to smart light strips that can be installed in unlikely spots.

They say it allows anyone with a laptop and less than a thousand dollars of equipment—just a telescope and a $400 electro-optical sensor—to listen in on any sounds in a room that's hundreds of feet away in real-time, simply by observing the minuscule vibrations those sounds create on the glass surface of a light bulb inside.
Intolerable bouts of extreme humidity and heat that could threaten human survival are on the rise across the world, suggesting that worst-case-scenario warnings about the consequences of global heating are already occurring, a new study has revealed.
Incandescent bulbs are classified by how much electrical power they use, like 60 watts or 100 watts.This is how old-fashioned fluorescent tubes work, except that the UV light is produced by LEDs instead of an excited gas.
Imagine traveling through the universe in your space pod, and stumbling on what looks like a massive galactic light bulb. This glowing beauty NGC 3384 isn’t like most galaxies, with a mix of mature stars and new stars, but is filled with nearly dead stars.
To light the bulb, I just need to pick two of these wires so that I can make a complete circuit with the battery and let current flow through the filament. The voltmeter, like just about every electrical measuring device, needs to have a complete circuit.
Finally, the resistance is really just a proportionality constant between the voltage and the current measured in units of ohms (often using the symbol Ω). Let's measure current and voltage to determine the temperature of a light bulb.
