**Hi all,

this news caught me by surprise today:

http://www.gizmodo.com.au/2014/07/this-super-efficient-lightbulb-uses-tesla-tech-for-an-incandescent-glow/

A bunch of Yanks (called "Finally Light Bulb ) have produced an affordable,  
miniature size "induction lamp" for home use.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electrodeless_lamp#Magnetic_induction_lamps

Identical in shape and appearance to the now banned light GLS bulbs with  
lumen /watt efficiency and colour quality similar to CFLs.

Instant start and no loss of life if cycled regularly as there are NO  
filaments to burn out.

Omni-directional light output  -  unlike most CFLs and LED lamps.

Can be safely handled and installed using the glass bulb -  unlike fragile  
CFLs.

800lumen ( 60W equivalent) set to go one sale this month in the USA.

Higher rated versions on the way, being made in India.

First to post a review / tear down on U-tube will get millions of hits.

Re: New class of lightbulb
Just a variation to the popular "tl"tube but with a radiosignal instead of  
current through the gas.
The same thing can be done by keeping the tl tube next to a radiating  
antenna..
The lightcolour  is purely dependant to the chemicals in the coating as the  
light produced in the gas is uv.

Which is really useful, Not. A quick perusal of the article indicates it  
was about getting the electronics down to a size to fit into a consumer  
standard x type light socket.
