In the future, connected light bulbs might not only provide light; they are also perfectly positioned to host microphones, cameras, speakers, or other technologies without adding new wiring or other infrastructure. Turning LED light bulbs with an expected lifespan of up to 20 years into a gadget also potentially converts them into products with relevant lives of five years or less. We prototyped a concept for a connected light bulb that can serve as a platform for connected functionalities while maintaining a graceful obsolescence. We call it Filo.
