The Light Bulb Gets Flat

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  December 28, 2008


Who says light bulbs need to be round? Despite what Copernicus might have taught us, flat is the new round.

Korean designer Joonhuyn Kim has reinvented the classic incandescent light bulb by putting it into a flat glass enclosure.

Kim claims the new bulbs take up just 1/3rd of the space of a conventional bulb, making them easier to pack and ship. And since they’re not round, they won’t roll off the table when you’re changing your bulbs.

And they just look cool. And taste good too. At least that’s what I got from the photo below:

At this point, the flat bulb is only a design prototype, but if Kim ever manages to get these produced, I’ll replace all the bulbs in my house with ’em.
