Switch's LED Bulb to Light up CES Stage
The SWITCH75 is the only LED light bulb that makes no compromise on light quality or in how the bulb can be used. SWITCH is the first manufacturer to announce a family of LED bulbs with 40, 60, 75 and 100 watt-equivalents. SWITCH bulbs last 25 times longer than incandescent bulbs while still providing that same warm glow. They also turn on instantly and can be used in any orientation – just like the conventional incandescent light bulb. SWITCH was also recently featured as one of TIME’s 50 Best Inventions of 2011, as well as on the cover of WIRED Magazine’s September issue.
“We are really excited to present our bulb as a CES Honoree,” said Tracy Bilbrough, CEO of SWITCH Lighting. “We believe we have an LED bulb that is going to change the world, and CES is the perfect forum to show off its brilliant design and liquid cooling technology.”
The prestigious Innovations Design and Engineering Awards are sponsored by the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA)®, the producer of the International CES, the world’s largest consumer technology tradeshow, and have been recognizing achievements in product design and engineering since 1976. SWITCH was named a CES Innovations Design and Engineering Award Honoree in November, 2011.
