• New light bulb to last 23 years
    48 replies, posted
We need new lights in our house, currently the bathroom has a dodgy, almost no luminescence, special ring shaped bulb. The bad thing is that it's useless during the day. The good part is your eyes don't explode when you need to piss in the early hours

[QUOTE=wanksta11;35883027]funtionality over profit should be the goal of companys, imagine how advanced we could be if companys would work for better technologys and not profit[/QUOTE] But if companies worked like that, who'd sell all the oil?
[QUOTE=Fingers!!!;35875741]My physics teacher a while ago told us that we actually see better under yellow light,. The details were quite amusing but I forgot all of that :v: I prefer white lights though.[/QUOTE] This is because the human eyes have a limited bandwidth of frequencies they can see, this starts at red and ends with purple. Things like infra-red and ultra-violet are outside the spectrum of visual light because our eyes simply didn't evolve to be able to see it. Right in the middle of the visual spectrum (which as I said ranges from red to purple, just like the rainbow) is green and yellow. Because of this we register yellow and green much better than say red or blue or white for that matter. Here, have some science: [url]http://www.telescope-optics.net/eye_spectral_response.htm[/url]
[QUOTE=FFStudios;35874446]LED's and fluorescant bulbs suck shit through ten bricks because neither of them can throw off the kind of warm light that incandescant bulbs did. I hate the pure white light of fluorescants.[/QUOTE] Then fucking buy warm CFL's.
Only 23 years? [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Centennial_Light]Cute.[/url]
[QUOTE=SGTNAPALM;35894819]Only 23 years? [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Centennial_Light]Cute.[/url][/QUOTE] yeah but everything from that time was built to last forever
Now make it give off a warm and nice light instead of gross icy cold light.
[QUOTE=BCell;35874501]This will ruin the light bulb companies everywhere. If you make a light bulb that last forever, nobody is going to buy a new one.[/QUOTE] That's like saying battery companies are gonna bankrupt cause we already have battery chargers right? And they are still alive.
[QUOTE=SGTNAPALM;35894819]Only 23 years? [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Centennial_Light]Cute.[/url][/QUOTE] Those old bulbs are also dim as hell.
[QUOTE=The golden;35874897]Then buy LED bulbs which replicate incandescents?

You can put it side-by-side with a incandescent and not be able to tell the difference in light.[/QUOTE] what's the name of these bulbs i'd like to buy one
[QUOTE=SGTNAPALM;35894819]Only 23 years? [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Centennial_Light]Cute.[/url][/QUOTE] We've had this discussion before, wasn't it proven that the bulb was underpowered which increased lifespan tenfold?
the trick is to use white light and use tan colored objects throughout your home. paint your walls light brown/tan
[QUOTE=Mattz333;35874623]So they will last about 6 years under normal usage.[/QUOTE] I built a light bulb that was meant to last more than 50 years [sub][sub][sub]if used one minute per day[/sub][/sub][/sub]
[QUOTE=meppers;35931064]the trick is to use white light and use tan colored objects throughout your home. paint your walls light brown/tan[/QUOTE] Or just cover the lightbulb with a tan paper that the light could easily shine through.

Bet the companys make it so the light bulbs die within 6 months. Otherwise they would go out of business.
[QUOTE=SilverKnight;35935704]Bet the companys make it so the light bulbs die within 6 months. Otherwise they would go out of business.[/QUOTE] All of our LED bulbs are almost a year old now. Try again.
If it is gonna last 23 years it makes me wonder what will happen if the light bulb falls and breaks or something and the gases inside are released.....Boom?
