Klipsch LightSpeaker System 5.2.2 Wireless Sound System

The Klipsch LightSpeaker System 5.2.2 wireless speaker system is the first product to combine an efficient LED lighting and a wireless ambient speaker into a single unit that installs like a light bulb. The full-range speaker uses a 20 watt high-performance, low-distortion digital amplifier to deliver energy efficient sound. What’s more, the 2.5-inch wide dispersion driver uses digital signal processing to optimize high- and low-frequency output for a full spectrum of sound. Its fully dimmable LED bulb is rated for 40,000 hours of use, meaning it could last 15 years or more. It also reduces daily lighting expenses by 80%, using just 10 watts to produce light that’s bright enough to replace up to a 65 watt bulb. Unlike incandescent bulbs, LED light bulbs contain no mercury or halogen gases and produce almost no heat. If you are interested, you can purchase the Klipsch LightSpeaker System 5.2.2 wireless speaker system for $339.99. [7Gadgets]

Solar Wind Bridge Concept

by Johan on February 6, 2011

The Solar Wind Bridge concept was designed by Francesco Colarossi, Giovanna Saracino and Luisa Saracino as part of an Italian design contest to re-imagine a decommissioned bridge. The bridge has solar cells embedded in the roadway and an array of 26 wind turbines underneath, which could produce 36 million kWh per year to power 15,000 homes. These designers have even included a “green promenade” that would run alongside the road, which they suggest could be used to grow fruits and vegetables. [Autoblog Green]
