The Future of Light Is the LED

Since the first of September 2011 the EU has banned the 60 Watts light bulb (75 and 100 Watt bulbs were already banned). Here’s an interesting story I read on Wired : The Future of Light Is the LED

Note that the latest LEDs are not so environmentally friendly as they seem !

So the LEDs found in current household applications are blue diodes daubed with a powdered coating called a phosphor, which includes rare-earth elements that filter blue light.
