Submission + - The Lightbulb of the Future (zdnet.com) 2

Chroniton writes: Using a tiny amount of argon gas plasma, a silicon valley company has developed a lightbulb the size of a Tic Tac that gives off as much light as a streetlight, but at full spectrum (CRI=91) and using less power. This new type of light burns at 6000K and gives off 140 lumens/watt, ten times as efficient as standard incandescent lamps, and twice the efficiency of LEDs. The new bulbs also have a 20,000 hour lifetime.
