LG announces new Smart Bulb

Will work with Android and iOS

LG Electronics today announced its first Smart Bulb — a pair of lightbulbs, actually, that will connect to Android and iOS devices. LG says the low-wattage bulbs will run for more than 10 years, five hours a day. "LG Smart Lighting" will work with Android 4.3 and up, and iOS 6 and above. It'll feature a security mode to make it look like you're home when you're actually away, and a play mode for when you're playing music (Android only).

And they'll also be able to flash when you receive a phone call.

LG's new smart bulbs will retail for around 35,000 won, or about $32 each.
