This Light Bulb is Great News for the Planet, but Bad News For Dimmer Switches

Nanoleaf Bloom is the first dimmable light bulb that doesn't need a dimmer

SAN FRANCISCO, July 31, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- In a world of apps and startups, Nanoleaf is one that is fully dedicated to energy efficiency and innovations for our planet. The three tree-huggers who invented the world's most energy efficient light bulb have done it again. On Monday (7/14), they announced their latest breakthrough invention, a clever new way to save even more energy. They are running a Kickstarter campaign to garner support and to raise awareness on this new invention for sustainability: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/nanoleaf/nanoleaf-bloom-the-first-bulb-that-dims-without-a

Within the first 24 hours of launch, they were already well over 200% of their initial goal.

While dimming a light bulb can significantly cut down on energy consumption, the problem is that there are far more regular light switches than dimmable ones. The Nanoleaf Bloom is the perfect solution. It has the dimming function built directly inside the light bulb, allowing it to be dimmed in any regular light fixture, using just a regular on/off light switch.

"We want to inspire people to adopt more energy efficient technology into their everyday lives," says Christian Yan, co-founder. "The best way to do that is by making products that are simple and convenient to use."
