Magic Bulb iLight from Origem

The Magic Bulb or iLight from Origem is a color changing bulb with built in speaker, controllable via bluetooth with any iOS or Android device.

Even without an app, you can stream music to the magic bulb from any phone, tablet or computer that has blueooth support.

Temperature hot spot check

These thermal pictures show the temperatures of the iLight after running for 8 hours and compared against a 16W Omni LED bulb. It’s worth noting that the iLight bulb is a direct measurement of the LED PCB while the measurement of the Omni bulb is the external plastic case. We’d expect to see higher temperatures from the Omni with a direct/internal temperature measurement.
