Amazing plasma lightbulb runs as hot as the suns surface

Silicon Valley's Luxim has developed a lightbulb the size of a Tic Tac that gives off as much light as a streetlight.

CNET News.com's Michael Kanellos talks to the company about its technology and its plans to expand into various markets.

The bulb has no wires going into it, and is 6000 Kelvin in temperature when running. Thats the same tempeature as the surface of the sun. This really is the lighting system of the future. The new bulb outputs up to 12,000 lumens with a 20,000 hour lifetime.
