Interactive Light Bulb
Radio-Frequency Identification (RFID) technology has the potential to provide inexpensive, wireless, battery-free connectivity and interactivity for objects that are traditionally not instrumented. However, these systems have not seen widespread deployment outside warehouses and supply chains, owing to the complexity of installing bulky RFID readers, antennas, and their supporting power and network infrastructure. In this work, we leverage advances in semiconductor optics, RF antenna design and system integration to create a hybrid RFID reader and smart LED lamp, in the form factor of a standard light bulb. This makes deploying RFID readers literally as easy as screwing in a light bulb. We explore the home-scale RFID interactions enabled by these smart bulbs, including infrastructure monitoring, localization and guided navigation, and standalone lighting effects.

While Edison was working on the whole lighting system, other inventors were continuing to make small advances, improving the filament manufacturing process and the efficiency of the bulb. The next big change in the incandescent bulb came with the invention of the tungsten filament by European inventors in 1904. These new tungsten filament bulbs lasted longer and had a brighter light compared to the carbon filament bulbs. In 1913, Irving Langmuir figured out that placing an inert gas like nitrogen inside the bulb doubled its efficiency. Scientists continued to make improvements over the next 40 years that reduced the cost and increased the efficiency of the incandescent bulb. But by the 1950s, researchers still had only figured out how to convert about 10 percent of the energy the incandescent bulb used into light and began to focus their energy on other lighting solutions.
One of the fastest developing lighting technologies today is the light-emitting diode (or LED). A type of solid-state lighting, LEDs use a semiconductor to convert electricity into light, are often small in area (less than 1 square millimeter) and emit light in a specific direction, reducing the need for reflectors and diffusers that can trap light.
During CES 2015, Pocket-lint took a tour of Sony's Life Space UX concept, which included an apartment-type setup, filled with interactive lights, speakers, and other internet-connected devices. One of the star gadgets was a desk projector, for instance, that could be placed over a table or any flat surface. It uniquely supported interactive touch, too.
We loved all of Sony's designs, though we were a majorly bummed to learn many of them wouldn't be available for a long while. But it looks like we won't have to wait forever: although Sony still isn't launching any thing soon, Beams Labs has a similar projector light that just landed on Kickstarter, and if successful, should start shipping in autumn.
The bulb-like device is called Beam, and much like any projector, it turns flat surfaces into big screens. It also connects to your mobile device via Wi-Fi or Bluetooth, enabling you to share content from your device and thus play games, watch movies, project board games, turn walls into digital paintings, stream music, etc. The possibilities seem limitless.
Beam can even assist with your daily activities, including wake you up with news and a weather forecast. It screws into a light socket or works with a power cable, so depending on the method you use, it can be hung to display on the ground or a table or laid flat to shoot onto a wall. To control Beam, just use the device's Apple or Android app.
[Winkler] Light bulbs placed on a circle are numbered 1 through N, all initially on. At time t, you examine bulb number t, and if it's on, you change the state of bulb t+1 (mod N); i.e., you turn it off if it's on, and on if it's off. If bulb t is off you do nothing. Prove that if you continue around and around the circle in this manner, eventually all the bulbs will again be on.
The applet allows you to experiment with the problem. Orange circles impersonate the on state of the bulbs, the red ones the off state. The green arrow points to the bulb under examination. The blue arrow points to the bulb whose state is going to be affected.
The applet generalizes the problem in two ways. First of all, the look ahead may be an integer other than 1; i.e., the examination of bulb t may affect bulb t+L, L > 0, where L is the "look ahead" parameter, 1 originally. Secondly, instead of examining the bulbs in their natural order, you may skip a chosen number (S) of bulbs.
The generalization does not require special treatment, but makes it obvious that there is one special case, viz., the state wherein all the bulbs are off. Except when S = 0 (mod N), this state is unreachable:
Indeed, to turn off an apparently last bulb, one would have to be examining a bulb that is on. This logic does not apply when S = 0 (mod N), because then the bulb to be turned off is exactly the bulb being examined.
The interactive circuit simulation mode is very useful for educational and demonstration purposes, as well as for tuning circuits interactively. Also it is unavoidable for interactive circuits which you could not otherwise test by software, e.g., circuits with switches, relays, or microcontrollers. TINA and TINACloud have special multimedia components (light bulb, motor, LED, switch, etc.) which respond with light, motion and sound.
Click the On push button to turn on the light (you should click at the place where the cursor turns into a vertical arrow). The Thyristor and light bulb will turn on and remain on, even after the push button is released. You can turn off the Thyristor and the light bulb by clicking the S push button.
Initially the red LED will light. Click on the START button (click when the cursor changes into a vertical arrow). OCR1 will close and remain closed, since the current flowing through OCR1 will keep magnetizing the CR relay coil. Consequently the green LED will light. OCR2 will open and the red LED will turn off. If you click on the STOP button you will break the self-holding circuit and the CR relay will release, the red LED will light again, the green LED will turn off.
