Website inhabitat is showcasing a new omnidirectional LED bulb being developed by Google and Lighting Science Group. The bulb, which is equipped with Google's open-source wireless networking protocol, can be dimmed or brightened on the fly by an Android-equipped smart phone, tablet, or laptop.

Next-gen lighting technology has come a long way since The Clapper -- Google and Lighting Science Group's new bulb is based on Lighting Science Group's A19 LED light and it features a built-in radio that interfaces with Google's new open-source wireless protocol. Unveiled today at the I/O developer conference in San Francisco, the protocol can be used to control appliances and thermostats as well, so it may very well usher in a new wave of smart systems that self-adjust to ensure energy efficiency.
