Bluetooth Bulb is a fabulous prototype LED light bulb using Bluetooth technology to construct an appealing set of features that simplifies your interaction with the lights in your home. Promising to save energy and make your life easier, this amazing project takes the light bulb one step further into the future. The embedded Bluetooth 4.0 technology allows you to control the light intensity and color with a few simple touches. Download the app, pair your smartphone up with one or several light bulbs throughout your home and gain full control over the light, its brightness or color. It even gives you access to an automatic timer and you can pair one bulb with several devices, so any member of the family has access to it from as far as 50 meters (164 feet) away. For now, the Bluetooth Bulb is a patented prototype, but we are confident it will change the way we interact with ambient light and give us more time to do the things we enjoy instead of the things we have to. If you think this technology will make you lazy, then I bet you don’t have a remote control in your home.
Let’s get started with some styling inspiration from Urban Outfitters, a brand that offers an interesting array of wall-mounted shelving options. Many of them celebrate the best of geo style. Below we see a trio of shelving solutions, including the Bryn Mountain Display Shelf, pictured at the top right of the photo. Note how each of these shelves holds “like items,“ such as rocks, jewelry and other natural wonders. The styling of this Geo Triangle Shelf proves there’s power in empty space. You may be tempted to fill every square inch of your decorative shelving, but remember that sometimes less is more.
Speaking of “less is more” design, if your shelf offers little display space, consider opting for one or two standout items to showcase rather than a slew of small finds. In the next image, we see the Magical Thinking Peaks Shelf, crafted from glass and aluminum. Then again, there’s something charming about a curiously cluttered look, especially if items are thoughtfully curated. The Magical Thinking Pyramid Shelf below holds treasures and curiosities. When your shelves make a sculptural statement, don’t overwhelm and block them with clutter. After all, when the design is as fabulous as the Bamboo Step Wall Shelf in the next featured image, you certainly don’t want to cover up the bold form of your shelving.
