GE's LED light bulbs look cool, last forever, cost a lot

Citizens of the Earth, you’re looking at the lightbulb of the future. In the coming years and decades our lives won’t be illuminated by simple spheres or coils of white. Oh no; future bulbs will have cool fins and flares that make them look almost worth the $40 to $50 we’ll pay for the things. That’s what GE plans to ask for its Energy Smart LED bulb when it ships sometime in the next 12 months, and while that is a lot compared to the exiting options, look at the benefits: GE’s bulbs will last a whopping 17 years when used four hours a day, and they give off light in all directions — not focused in one spot like previous designs. But, most importantly, they’re very efficient, using nine watts to give off the equivalent amount of light of a 40 watt incandescent bulb. That’s 10 percent less than a 40 watt equivalent CFL, and there’s no mercury or other toxic goop involved here either. It’s the future, folks. Start saving.
