Adding This to my Christmas List :)

Check out Hue!

Remember the LIFX, the wi-fi-enabled smart LED bulb? While its Kickstarter funding period ended two weeks ago (well past its $100,000 target with $1.3 mil in pledges), there's no word on when production will begin; on November 12th the LIFX team wrote that "It's not possible to make final [production decisions] until we perform detailed thermal modeling and standardized measurements of light output, color rendering index, white balance agility, etc."

the prices are a little steep...but if they last long enough then it would be well worth it to do this in the primary living spaces in a home or office!
