Currently over three quarters of the way to Kickstarter funding, the LIFX lightbulb can be adjusted to any colour, available intensity and on/off schedule without extra wiring or switches.

You replace your existing light bulbs with LIFX, wifi-enabled LED bulbs (which the manufacturer claims last up to 25 years), download an iPhone/Android App and start tweaking the ambiance. You can even synch the lights to music tracks on your smartphone.

Pledge purchase price of between $50 and $70 per bulb.
