FluoroL.E.D. Bulb Concept

A partner and I collaborated on a project to bring some sustainability to the world of consumer fluorescent lighting. We developed a concept bulb that drops into existing fluorescent housings and is illuminated via L.E.D.s. Laser cut acrylic at the bulb's core serves as the holder for the L.E.D.s and wiring. A 120v - 12.6v mini transformer was used to help step down some of the power.

While neither of us have the expertise or funds to bring this idea to full fruition, we have demonstrated that this could be a possibility in the future. L.E.D.s are more efficient than fluorescent bulbs, last 3 to 10 times as long, generate less waste, and include less hazardous materials than fluorescents.
